Meadows for reservoirs in whc T store T Tuol flood waters as a supply for San Francisco. If this scheme goes thro' not only will T H. Hy Vall, whc is a yosemite be destroyed but also T grand upper Tuolumne Meadows which is as you know T most specious & best central camp— round in all T high Sierra T damming of T Yo itself wld not be more destructive to T Nat Park than this Tuolumne scheme.
