Father Escalante camped here October 2, 1776. His exploring party of ten men headed by Father Francisco Dominguez and map-maker Pacheco preached to the Indians and charted a northern route between Santa Fe, New Mexico and Monterey, California. They named this valley "Valle Salado" (Valley of Salt). They traveled west near Clear Lake then east to a hillock, (Pahvant Butte). Here they found marshes and much pasturage, but salt water.
