In 1776, while Spain was establishing missions in California, Father Garces became in the first known Europe to travel along Indian trails here. Mojave Indians helped guide Garces west to the San Gabriel Mission. In 1826, famed trapper and explorer Jedediah Smith crossed the desert, followed by other trappers and settlers. The discovery of gold in eastern California, Nevada and Arizona in the mid 1800s led to the development of wagon routes across the desert and changed this area forever.
