Dry Lakes

Bristol Dry Lake

click photo for Bristol Lake gallery
On the floor of this beautiful and broad valley lies Bristol dry lake. Sandy and dry toward the south, broken and spotted with lava fields at the north end. Historic Route 66 stretches straight along the base of the foothills. Amboy crater and the rest-stop towns of Amboy and Chambles provide momentary diversions for those traveling straight through. Chloride extraction takes place along the highway running south across the lake to Twentynine Palms and Joshua Tree National Park. Far off and to the east one can see the green trace of the vineyards in the Cadiz.
