Eastern Mojave Vegetation Deep Springs Dunes, Inyo County, California.


It's not clear to me where these dunes are. Pavlik's (1985) published location of 37°35'N, 118°05'W is on the eastern flank of the White Mountains, about 17 miles north of Deep Springs Valley.

If Pavlik meant 37.35°N, 118.05°W, the location is in a small hanging valley at the mouth of Birch Creek, but still in course alluvium on the very northern edge of Deep Springs Valley.

I would assume the dunes would be on the southeast margin of the valley, downwind of Deep Springs Lake.

Elevation: 1581m.
