Hardly anyone knew Hetch Hetchy Valley. It was one of the most beautiful valleys in the world. Handsome cliffs and waterfalls in a charming setting. Trees to frame the vistas, meadows to look at and to lok from, natural beauty under foot and to walk by - a setting with open space, living space, that a million people might see and enjoy every year. It was very much like the Yosemite Valley the world knows today, just a few miles to the south.
