Payahǖǖnadǖ - "Place of flowing water."
Note: camping and fires are not allowed on Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) property, which covers most of the Owens Valley floor. Obviously this cannot all be patrolled, and camping is done all the time. You're warned. Please don't have fires unless you're in a campground with fire rings. When this valley catches fire it burns fast. Never trespass LADWP fences enclosing aquaduct structures.
