Winter Sports at Huntington Lake Lodge free pdf Excerpt from Winter Sports at Huntington Lake Lodge For centuries snow and rain have fallen on the High Sierras of California making the rills, brooklets, streams and rivers that, throughout the year, pour forth their vivifying waters into the heart of the thirsty valleys which lie toward the Western Sea. Indians have roamed over these High Sierras, have fished and bathed in these waters, and there their usefulness seems to have ended. But the resistless Anglo-Saxon invaded the scene, first as a trapper, then as miner, cattle-man, lumberman, fisherman, lover of majestic scenery, and finally as conservator of the mountain's natural resources. Among other of these resources the greatest was found to be the potentialities of the waters for the development of electric energy. In the far-away cities of the valleys, and even of regions across other ranges of mountains were cities of restless, energetic peoples demanding vast supplies of streets, stores, and markets, for driving their street-cars, automobiles, machines and power plants. Modern Science saw in the Sierran streams the means of supplying these demands, hence it linked hands with Capital to wrest from the snow-born waters the electrical energy they contained. Roads were engineered and built onto the mountains, sites for the erection of gigantic dams were chosen which would impound great masses of these hitherto vagrant waters and thus crate beautiful lakes in the midst of scenic glories and wonders unsurpassed on the face of the earth.
