|Topaz Lake - Nevada 2016|
Topaz Lake has an interesting backstory:
The modern reservoir was formed by diverting waters from the
into a nearby basin that had previously contained a smaller, natural lake. That
lake had historical significance since it lay on the route taken by American
explorer Jedediah Smith in late spring of 1827 when leaving West Walker River California
at the end of his first journey, the first crossing ever of the Sierra Nevada by a non-native.
