What is So Interesting About Clark Dry Lake?

When I spotted this lake in the distance, I insisted we drive as close as we could get. Good thing we had rented a Buick Enclave, which pretty much goes anywhere. My husband seemed a bit uncomfortable driving into the washes but then he has never owned a jeep nor participated in four-wheeling like I have.

There is so much to see and do on a dry lake bed. For starters, the bed is not always totally dry. When there is a lot of rain, you can spot fairy shrimp at Clark Dry Lake. There is also vegetation such as creosote bushes, driftwood here and there and every so often an ocotillo, which is my new favorite desert plant. Ants galore. At one point, Clark Dry Lake was used by the military during World War II as a bombing range.

You can read more and see a bunch more photos in my personal blog today at this link: Photos of Clark Dry Lake at Anza Borrego Desert.

A Moderate Palm Canyon Hike at the Borrego Desert

This Big Island Beach is Like Being at a Lake

When househunting a few years back, Hella and I had stopped near Manini Beach but not at that particular spot. We had encountered the guys renting kayaks around the bend from this beach. It is a little hard to find if you don't know where it is… more
