Ivanpah Dry Lake
Ivanpah Lake is a dry lake bed in the Mojave, located almost entirely in what was once San Bernardino County, California. It takes its name from the Ivanpah Valley it lies in, and is almost entirely within Californian territory. The large area and steady winds made it a popular racing destination, though now all that's racing is the sand, thrown into the air as part of large dust storms.
The lake is a stretch of desolate, sandy lake bed partially obscured by the almost constant sandstorms. There's a small rocky hill on the northern edge of the lake, with a ruined blue Corvega and a honey mesquite tree on top. The Corvega has a suitcase inside and a stash toolbox between it and the rocks.
