Why

Just so you can pronounce it. I saw this on the map and wondered what its all about. I was really impressed once I got there. And yes, its a real place with its own ZIP code. You should heard Google Maps pronounce it :-). It was once a Spa, but today, its The Desert Studies Center.

What To Do

It’s a hiking area, seeing the wild life as well as just enjoying the desert. You also get to walk on the dry lake bed. I’m told its not always dry though and you are warned by signs not to drive on it. It’s a pretty amazing desolate place, that’s worth some time exploring.

The area is a part of the Mojave National Preserve.
