If you’ve enjoyed Mr. Johnson’s descriptions of Webber’s Lake (from his visit there in 1882), over the past two days, I have an extraordinary bonus for you.

Nancy in California gave me this link to a December 3, 2012, San Francisco Chronicle article about recent efforts to save Webber Lake and the surrounding area for public use and enjoyment. Luckily for us, the article includes stories about Mr. Webber and some of his guests and even current photos of the lake, the still-beautiful wilderness around it, and Mr. Webber’s hotel. Thank you, Nancy!
