Bombo’s Pond

bombos-pond

Beatty lies at the southern end of Oasis Valley, through which the Amargosa River more-or-less flows. Most of the water is invisible, below the surface. Bombo’s Pond, a human construct slightly south of town in the Amargosa Narrows, is a rare sight in this part of the world. South of the Narrows, the river disappears from the surface and becomes a dry wash for many miles.
