Outdoors: Mojave National Preserve

Densely populated southern California is fortunate to have two of the world's great deserts in its backyard. The National Park Service provides an introduction to the Mojave Desert, the deceptively sparse area that falls between the Great Basin and Sonoran deserts. "The Preserve encompasses 1.6 million acres of mountains, jumble rocks, desert washes, and dry lakes." Sections include desert ecology, plants and animals, geology, history and culture, plus a glossary, maps, recreation tips, learning opportunities, and management issues. <http://www.nps.gov/moja>
