Communication is a necessary skill for essentially every facet of life. This is exemplified by the story of how Inyo County received its name. The first American explorers of the region asked the local Paiutes what the name of the mountain range located directly east of Owens Valley was. Misunderstanding the question, the Paiutes responded by saying “that is the land of Inyo.” Inyo, not to be confused with the Mono Tribe, was actually the name of a Shoshone tribal leader. Inyo, an otherwise historically overlooked figure has achieved a certain level of continued notoriety.

Similarly notorious is the diverse terrain and geography of the county. Inyo is home to the highest peak in the Continental United States (Mt. Whitney) and the lowest point in North America (Death Valley). The two points are not visible from each other, but both can be observed from the Panamint Range on the west side of Death Valley, above the Panamint Valley.

Inyo County is located on the eastern side of California. The county was formed in 1866 and became larger in 1872 as it gained territory from surrounding counties. Inyo County has a population of 18,467. The median household income is $45,000 and the median household price is $246,200.
