    This area is very near the Mesquite Sand Dunes and was named because it resembles a cornfield(?). The plants are actually mostly arrowweed. If some poor farmer's cornfield looks like this he's going broke!

    Just east of the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes these plants are know as Arrowweed. The sand dunes gradually build up around them, but as the winds blow, so does the sand dunes leaving the tall root systems exposed which is how they get shaped this way. Some are as tall as 6 feet high.

    Devil's cornfield

    Arroweed, and unusual plant that thrives on slightly salt water is prevalent in the northern section of the salt creek basin. These plants are found right next to and east of the sand dune area.

    There is a paved turn-out area next to the road and a sign with a camera on it.
