Valle Vacio (Spanish for empty valley) is the only way to describe the desolate Owens Valley at times. Originally Paiute land, Owens Valley was once home to a thriving ecosystem centered around a large lake. As Los Angeles grew in the early 20th century, the lake was pumped dry, destroying a once thriving ecosystem and leaving behind an arid landscape with little resources left for survival.
