Erica for Boron Rest Area Eastbound
Nice rest stop. It had plenty of parking space, the bathrooms were clean but 1 stall had a broken door & wouldn't stay locked. There's also a working payphone which was nice to see since you hardly see payphones nowadays.

Clean and well maintained restrooms with plenty of parking for both a quick stop or for an overnight stay. Its located far enough off the hwy so you don't hear much noise if you end up staying overnight.

Historical marker inscription: In the 1880s, the famous twenty-mule teams hauled borax from mines in Death Valley to the railroad junction in Mojave. The wagon route passed just north of here. In 1925, a huge deposit of borax ores was discovered near Boron. By the late 1920s, mining here replaced borax mining in Death Valley. The modern mine, north of the highway, is an open pit more than one mile long, one-half mile wide and 500 feet deep. Nearly 80 minerals were found in the open pit mine. These minerals were formed by unusual chemicals deposited in what was once a shallow lake. Long ago, volcanic flows formed a broad, shallow basin. The ridges to the northeast are made of this lava. Water and steam, rich in borates, rose through volcanic vents and cracks, and settled in the basin. As water evaporated, beds of borax formed. Over time, wind and water eroded nearby mountains and ridges. The erosion process covered the borax deposit with several hundred feet of sediment. Borax, and chemicals from borax, are used in hundreds of products from soaps and cosmetics to aircraft parts and jet fuels. Borax is a mineral composed of sodium, boron, oxygen and water. Borax for commercial use comes from a number of different minerals called borates. Twenty-mule team in Death Valley about 1885. The teams usually had 18 mules and two strong draft horses.

My wife and I had a nice picnic there on our way to Las Vegas. Now I'm sad.
