    Eagle Borax Works

    Eagle Borax Works site

    A site of industrial archaeology on the West Road. Not much standing structures left, but a visit can nevertheless be interesting for the serious student of borax mining.

    Shorty's Grave

    Located on the West Road, the resting place of prospector Shorty Harris is a very atmospheric place.

    Beat the queues that form on the Badwater road during the high season, and take the West Road instead: 40 miles of undisturbed gravel!
