Life In Rancho Cucamonga California

Life or actually the population grew slowly in this area, although it was populated by Indians and Spanish Missionaries since the late 1700's. The Valley was first seen by White men and there guides in the early 1800's as they crossed over the then unnamed Cajon Pass. One of the things one of the guides noted was that the whole valley area seemed to covered by a brown smoke of some sort. It was actually the fields being burned by the Indians, but not realizing it, there were the first to observe smog.
