Smith Brothers 1901

Diller again spots the same upright, broken off tree, floating in the Lake that he spotted in 1898. “Owing to the steep slope of the rim, a tree frequently slides into the water in an erect position, and as the lower part becomes water-logged, it floats about the lake with only a few feet of the top projecting above the water and thus furnishes a spectacle curious to excite the imagination,” Diller writes.

Record Lake level established by Diller at 6,178.545 feet above sea level.
