    The Devil's Cornfield

    This area is called the devil's cornfield for its vague resemblance to a cornfield. it has a surreal appearance as corn shucks gathered up , in actuality its a local type of grass that grows in sparse clumps.

    Directions: HWY 374 east of Stovepipe Wells

    Looks Like a Cornfield?

    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!

    The Devil's Cornfield is a flat section of Death Valley that features desert plants that seem to have been planted in somewhat orderly rows. It is a strange sight and can be seen from the roadside (Route 190 east of Stovepipe Wells).

    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.

    Address: Highway 190

    Directions: Located on Hwy 190, just 20 miles northwest of Furnace Creek

    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.

    Directions: Route 190 West of Stovepipe Wells.

    These unusual arrowweed bushes got there name from the Native American's use of the plants for arrow shaft.
