Notes:

The plaques in the picture may not have anything to do with the Portola camp, but they are in the area. Heavy construction and closed roads limited access (4/2014).


From the Guidebook:

The Portolá Expedition of 1769 camped on November 5 at a 'laguna grande' which today is covered by the Upper Crystal Springs Lake.
