Cave Mountain, California, USA

Cave Mountain looms over Interstate 15 in the heart of the Mojave Desert, not far from the town of Baker. It does have caves, but they are more like rock shelters than true caverns, which form by dissolving limestone deep underground at the water table. The Mojave River has its headwaters nearby.

For a closer view of this wonderful desert, see the Joshua Tree National Park photo-tour and the California desert gallery.
