Cleghorn Lakes Wilderness

SIZE: 33,980 acres

LOCATION: San Bernardino County; 16 miles northeast of Twentynine Palms, California

NATURAL RESOURCES: Named for the dry lakes found near its center, this wilderness contains vastly different natural resources. The east portion is mountainous while the west portion is a vast alluvial slope or bajada. Elevations range from 1,400 feet at the desert floor to the rugged Bullion Mountains, which rise more than 4,100 feet across a 4-mile stretch. The Bullion Mountains include desert bighorn sheep habitat, and desert tortoise can be found on the valley floor. Barrel cactus "gardens" and "smoke trees" inhabit some washes. The Lakes offer occasional spring wildflower displays, and Crucifixion Thorn has been found near the eastern edge of the wilderness boundary.

GLOSSARY > alluvial fan, bajada, dry lake
