John Woodhouse Audubon stopped here in 1849 with ten men and forty-six mules. Of course, back then, there was no bridge and the Kern River was a torrent. He thought, "You know, this would be a great place for a ferry crossing!" Well, John might have crossed Kern County at this point, but, probably not. He didn't like getting his feet wet, so, he probably went North up the West side of the valley looking for the odd bird or two along the way.
