In the Belly of the Pisgah Crater

This is the view out of the Pisgah Crater, found just off of historic Route 66. Newberry Springs and Barstow are to the west. There are supposedly a number of lava tubes/caves at the crater, but we found only this one. The crater is under private ownership and it's being eaten away by mining activity. For now, enough of it remains to visit, and the view from the top takes in a huge chunk of the Mojave desert.
