Zeb Robare was a guide at Paul Smith's hotel. In his small book, The Beloved Physician, Stephen Chalmers wrote that Zeb Robare "was asked by some ladies he was rowing the name of a certain mountain up here. 'That's Ampersand,' said Zeb. 'But, guide, how do you spell it?' 'Ah,' said Zeb, 'that's the hell of it. ma'am. I can climb it easy enough, but I could n't spell it to save my life!'"
