Inyo County is a county on the east side of the Sierra Nevada and southeast of Yosemite National Park in the eastern-central
part of the U.S. state of California. Inyo County includes the Owens River Valley; it is flanked to the west by the Sierra
Mountains, and to the east by the White Mountains and the Inyo Mountains. Present day Inyo county has been the historic homeland
for thousands of years, of the Mono tribe, Coso people, Timbisha and Kawaiisu Native Americans. Inyo County was formed in
1866 from the territory of the unorganized Coso County created on April 4, 1864 from parts of Mono and Tulare Counties. It
acquired more territory from Mono County in 1870 and Kern County and San Bernardino County in 1872.
