Back in the 1840s, Peyotl Champignons would search the foothills in the Spring for fungus. He would gather them, dry them and then barter with the Yokut Indian tribes. Depending on the quality of Peyoti's harvest, he would sometimes receive payment in matching tule reed bowls. He was very close to having a full set.
Peyoti always held back a bit of his harvest and hid it under a rock below this bluff. It was his practice to take a taste of the previous year's harvest and meditate for awhile before heading in to do his bartering. Awhile could be anywhere between one and four days. The timing all depended on when the flying pigs appeared.
