"Everyone" has seen this area of the Valley. The surrey scene in the film Oklahoma, along the lake, was filmed here at the Canoa Ranch. Some consideration was given to using the Kinsley Ranch Lake for the film (according to Mr. Kinsley).

The original, 8x10 picture has a wider color range and
shows clearly that there is snow on the boughs nearby,
the trees across the lake, and in the mountains.
