A friend of mine dug up some good history about the Pinnacle Peak Lookout site, also known as Mt. Peak, or Mt. Pete by locals.

I've updated my page for this hike: Hike Pinnacle Peak

Does anyone know who R.L. Miller was?  Check out this amazing replica he built...
Replica soon to be placed in local museum

This is also a good story from a 1951 local paper....
Ethel told visitors of the first "fire" her husband located. It was early in the morning and great clouds of smoke were billowing up in the green forests to the East. Bringing his finder quickly to bear on the smoke he had the location in no time at all. Subsequent and speedy checking indicated that the "fire" had suddenly moved. It was then that Ethel still snug under the covers, took pity on her spouse who had his trousers in one hand and was manipulating the fire finder with the other, and meekly informed him that the "fire" was the locomotive of a White River logging train on a routine run.

Taking a break from peakbagging to do some lookout bagging.
