Inyo County, California
Inyo County is located in east-central California in
the southwestern United States, on the east side of the Sierra Nevada
Mountains and south of Yosemite National Park. Mount Whitney, the
highest peak in the lower 48 states, is located in Inyo County.
Badwater, in Death Valley National Park and the lowest point in the
United States, is also located in the county. The two points are not
visible from each other, but both can be observed from the Panamint
Range on the west side of Death Valley. Inyo County was formed in 1866
from parts of Mono and Tulare Counties. The county derived its name
from the Native American name for the mountains in its area. The
meaning of the word inyo is "dwelling place of the great spirit."
