The Ancestral Mojave River

Afton Canyon



Two general theories may explain the formation of Afton Canyon; One, during a time of high water levels the water poured over the top of the lakeshore and into the Lake Mojave basin to the east starting a period of erosion several hundred to several thousand years long, or a seismic event occurred breaching the canyon wall and leading to a rapid period of draining, possibly emptying Lake Manix in only a few days or weeks.
