"The Needles" viewed from Topock, Arizona (Alt. 510 ft) facing south, across a bend in the Colorado River. This cluster of volcanic spires represents magma that cooled & hardened in the conduits of now-eroded volcanoes. Long an important landmark for indigenous peoples, & more recent surveyors & travellers. Needles, California was named for this jagged range. The 1940 film "The Grapes of Wrath" shows autos crossing this bridge, with the Needles looming on the horizon. This is a low, hot desert range, within the basin & range province, which encompasses much of the arid southwestern U.S. & most of Mexico.
