November 6 -10, 1769

Near "El Palo Alto" the tall tree, the Portola Expedition of 63 men and 200 horses and mules camped. They had traveled from San Diego in search of Monterey but discovered instead the Bay of San Francisco. Finding the bay, too large to go around and deciding that Monterey had been by-passed, they ended the search and returned to San Diego.
