Rabbit Springs Dry Lake, CA
Rabbit Springs is a relatively small, flat, smooth dry lake that is excellent for flying ultralights of all kinds. It is also used by RC model aircraft enthusiasts mainly on the weekends. The valley is somewhat narrow here, making for a more scenic area to fly. In the winter, the mountains to the south are covered in snow, and just above the lake to the north is Chimney Rock pictured at right.
There are some large power lines to the north, along the edge of the lakebed, but they are far enough away from the best part of the dry lake to be of much concern.
The GPS coordinates of the place we meet and camp are 34°27'37.1"N and 117°01'53.8"W
