It's a long drive to get out there, but it's the perfect place to stop for a short picnic for lunch and to see the contrast of a wetlands teeming with life against the stark and bleak desert that surrounds it. While there we saw all kinds of birds, like ducks, bald eagles, and geese, and we also spotted a coyote. There was almost nobody around when we were there, so it was almost like we had the place to ourselves. It's the perfect stop between the geode beds and Topaz Mountain if you're visiting both on the same weekend.
