An area southeast of Quartzsite, Arizona. Photo taken looking east southeast showing the surface covered with vegetation and large lag gravel protecting it against wind erosion. These areas appear dark blue on the satellite eolian image.

Same area and location as above, but looking southwest. Note the lag gravel and vegetation in the area, which shows up as dark blue in the satellite eolian image.
