Additional Details:
Many summers ago, two giants, one named Kah-Bel, lived on Bartlett Mountain, the other named Konocti, lived on mountain bearing his name. Konocti had a beautiful daughter named Lupiyoma. Kah-Bel, wishing the hand of Lupiyoma, caused a fight with her father, resulting in the death of both. Grief stricken, Lupiyoma shed tears over the body of her love, Kah-bel, causing Little Borax Lake. Her father, lying down where Konocti now stands, died, and his daughter's tears caused the bubbling water in the springs in what is now known as Soda Bay. Note - Profile of mountain looks like head and chest of a man
