Why We Care
To travelers so long shut among the mountain ranges a sudden view over the expanse of silent waters had in it something sublime. Several large islands raised their rocky heads out of the waves. . . . Then, a storm burst down with sudden fury upon the lake, and entirely hid the islands from our view.
John C. Fremont, Report of the Exploring Expedition to the Rocky Mountains, 1845
