February 15, 1923: "W.B. Kelso, forest ranger for the Clear Creek division of the Pike national forest, was in Golden Tuesday, and was discussing with City Clerk Curry and others plans for adequate fire protection in the mountal parks district. While a great deal of this country is not included in the forest boundaries, Mr. Kelso believes that some plan of co-operation between the cities of Golden and Denver and the forest service could be arranged. He believes that a man should be stationed at Bergan Park during the summer months. With telephone communication between this point and the fire lookout station on Chief mountain, quick action could be had on incipient forest fires in short time. Mr. Kelso called attention to the importance to Golden of protecting the Beaver Brook water shed." (Colorado Transcript)

Her lookout point in Arapahoe national forest, 40 miles west of Denver, surveys mountain country landmarked by 14,259-foot Mount Evans, the sharp, icy continental divide, the old winding stagecoach road to Central City, and placid Evergreen lake. On 24-hour duty since she opened the summer lookout June 5, she plans to stay on the 11,475 foot peak until snow falls in September." (The Salt Lake Tribune)
