Page 8 The History Corner Last week in the "Where is This?" feature, I said I would feature a picture of the men who put the rock cairn on top of He Devil. The old photos here were taken by George W. Paddon sometime before 1925. Jesse Grogan, from Bend, Oregon donated them to the museum. According to Wednesday, May 16, 2012 Early Docttmentatio** of the Seven De0000iJs Mountains Grogan, "Paddon was with were killed in WWII. National Geographic" It The collection of 124 appears he may have been photographs shows a surveying the Devils, and group of several men he certainly took many with horses, tents and photographs. He was camping gear, but mostly married to Effie Fuller and show mountain scenes. If lived on Pole Creek for anyone has more info on many years. Effie's nephew, this expedition or George Donald Fuller, was one of Paddon, please let me the men from Council who know. The Adams County Record By Dale Fisk --.253-4582 Jeff Canfield on top of He Devil, 2010. rock cairn now looks as if it has been taken apart and sloppily re-stacked, or maybe it has collaPsed some over the years. The surveying device shows up again in this photo, captioned, "The Chief and the Mutt on Monument Mountain." If you compare this shot to the smaller photo from last week, this one was taken from almost the same place, looking the same direction - SW from He Devil. The scene hasn't changed much. The caption on this photo says, "The Chief." Whether this is Paddon or not is unknown. The man seems to be using some kind of surveying device. This Paddon photo has the caption, "On the He Devil. Elevation 9387." It is my assumption that if these guys surveyed the Seven Devils, that they erected this cairn. There :is a taller cairn shown on another peak in this collection of 124 Seven Devils pho- tos; If they weren't surveying, why would they climb to the top of so many peaks?

Heaven's Gate Lookout is onthe peak just left of center in the background. Part of She Devil is visible at the edge. That's the Tower of Babel at the upper right. If you have never Heaven's Gate Lookout, it is a must see. It has a spectacular view of the Devils and more. You can drive right to it on a good road that goes west Highway 95 just this side of Riggins.
