Excerpt from Historic Facts and Fancies: History and Landmarks Section of California Federated Women's Clubs

We will begin with the northern part of the State. Mount Shasta crowns it right nobly, with her everlasting snow-capped summit. Lake Tahoe is a sapphire set in green. Yosemite, so vast in extent, so wonderful in effects, can not be pictured so that justice is done to it. No traveler has ever been disappointed in it. It is the pride, not alone of the State, but of the nation. The renowned Calaveras trees, largest in the world; San Francisco Bay, with its three great arms extending far inland; Seal Rock; the different islands, and Golden Gate, entrance to the fine harbor and city, are Nature's own handi work and wonderful landmarks. Golden Gate Park, Sutro Heights, and Cliff House are works of nature and art combined. Mount Tamalpais is noted for its unique railroad and wonderful View. Mount Hamilton Observatory is world-renowned. Mount Diablo is striking in shape, if not so tall as others.' The beautiful Santa Clara Valley; the Sacramento River and Valley; the Geysers and hot springs; Monterey Bay and surroundings, cited in art and history; Santa Cruz Bay, landlocked with beautiful mountains and big trees, are indeed landmarks to be proud of. The great deserts have their attractions and interest - the odd shades, and cacti, sage - brush and grease wood. Los Angeles River and region, with beautiful, dark - green orange orchards. Mount Lowe and Mount Wilson are huge monuments, indeed. The San Gabriel hills and valley frame a charming picture.

Next, we see San Pedro harbor, Point Fermin, and Santa Catalina Island. At last, we come to San Diego, with another fine harbor overlooked by Point Loma; her strange valleys and deep canon.

From San Francisco to San Diego, the famous old missions point to early history and are lasting landmarks. All along the coast we find the lighthouses ashing their warning light.

The long Coast Range and the Sierra Nevadas extend from one end to the other of the State.
