  • John Muir the Father of America's National Parks lived on the northeast side of this lake from 1849-1855. Although he travelled all over the world, Muir never forgot this land and tried several times to buy and preserve parts of it, remarking, "...even if I should never see it again, the beauty of its lillies and orchids is so pressed into my mind I shall always enjoy looking back at them in imagination even across seas and continents and perhaps after I am dead." Erected by the John Muir Chapter of the Sierra Club in 1988 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of John Muir's birth on April 21, 1838.John Muir the Father of America's National Parks lived on the northeast side of this lake from 1849-1855.

  • He came to America as a lad of eleven, spent his teen years in hard work clearing the farm across this lake. Carving out a home in the wilderness. In the "sunny woods, overlooking a flowery glacial meadow and a lake rimmed with water lillies." He found an environment that fanned the fire of his zeal and love for all nature, which, as a man, drove him to study, afoot, alone and unafraid, the forests, mountains and glaciers of the west, to become the most rugged, fervent naturalist America has produced, and the father of the national parks of our country.He came to America as a lad of eleven, spent his teen years in hard work clearing the farm across this lake.
