1. The Valley Marker
Inscription.  Lagoon Valley with its hills and spring-fed lake, provided centuries of good living for the Ulatis Indians who found this valley very well suited for their survival. The hills were rich in oak trees, acorns, berries and herbs. Large game such as elk, deer, antelope and bear were hunted here. The hills provided natural supplies that the Indians used for tools, hunting, and shelter. The sandstone rocks in these hills still bear the mortar-holes where acorns were ground. The lake was a wealth of waterfowl, fish and aquatic plants. In the 1800s, Spanish settlers enjoyed the same good living here. Today the area provides same farming and recreational activities.
