CHL No. 25 Portolá Camp: October 30 - San Mateo


NO. 25 PORTOLÁ EXPEDITION CAMP - The Portolá Expedition of 1769 camped October 30 on a stream at the foot of Montara Mountain, which now blocked their way. Needing food badly, here the explorers found a plentiful supply of mussels. They named the camp 'El Rincón de las Almejas.'
