U.S Borax Visitor Center


As I was driving back from Las Vegas on CA-58 in the middle of Mojave Desert, I decided to stop in Boron, Ca and visit the U.S. Borax Visitor Center.  The Mojave Desert has one of the largest deposits of Borax on Earth. U.S. Borax has been mining it for 150 years. The U.S. Borax Visitor Center tells the story of borax and the mine:

Here is the mine and an evolution of bringing the borax out:

And a little about the history of U.S. Borax. I had no idea that they sponsored TV Shows back in the day:

And some of the products that use Borax

It was a really interesting place to visit and I am glad that I made the side trip to visit it.
