Wildlife, plant life, and some history

The desert may look a little barren at first take, but there are bighorn sheep, desert tortoise, Black-tailed jackrabbit, skunk, antelope, coyote, bobcat, ect.. There are also many species of lizards and snakes that live in this desert oasis. Keep a lookout also for the various plant life. There are Yucca plants, Creosote, Desert Paintbriss, Prickly Pear cactus and ect..
Absolutely stunning so bring your camera!
Also, just in the canyons is 'Mouse’s Tank’. It was named after an alleged Southern Paiute Indian renegade named ‘Little Mouse’ who hid out there in the 1890’s. He was accused of gunning down two prospectors and many other crimes. Mouse was never found but they believe they found his watering hole, 'Mouse's Tank'.
