colonization by the Spanish Empire,

indigenous people populated the southern

Monterey Bay area including the Salinas

Valley, Monterey Peninsula, Big Sur coast,

and Santa Lucia Mountains. Throughout the

years, these people have been identified

by different tribal names including

Ohlone, Costanoan, and Esselen. Their

descendents today chose a legal name that

reflects that identification diversity.

Today, the Ohlone/Costanoan-Esselen Nation

is seeking federal tribal recognition.</P>

<P>The Esselen territory encompassed the

to Buzzard's Roost - walk to Pfeiffer

Ridge as it rises from the Big Sur River

into a redwood and mixed hardwood forest.

Interestingly, on the ridge redwoods grow

along side chaparral plants. The unusual

soils made of sandstone and shale, and the

rare microclimate made of the cool ocean

breeze mixed with the warm valley, cause a

fascinating array of plants - dwarf

redwoods with chamise, wheatleaf

ceanothus, yerba santa and manzanitas side

by side.</P>

<P>Pfeiffer Redwood Creek trail to the

falls is through a lively, dense old

redwood grove. It is an instructive trail.

You can see how a redwood forest makes its

own soil and understory. The creek cuts

through alluvial deposits, and you can see

how the valley built up over the eons.

Sur River begins high in the Santa Lucias

by the Ventana Cones. It drains more than

sixty square miles of raw coastal mountain

watershed and plunges down a narrow

granite gorge into the Park and lazes

toward the ocean. Huge boulders brought by

the River are flung around the canyon in

great artistic array. Sands brought by the

River spread out along the banks by the

Redwoods making a unique and pleasing

scene.</P>

of preservation. Because the settlers became so

impressed and respectful of the setting, they

developed a strong conservation ethic which has
