Footprints of huge bear dogs--long-limbed grizzly-like beasts with 11-foot strides--as well as three-toed horses and other ancient animals are found on the outskirts of this desert town 130 miles northeast of Los Angeles. The area is covered with other footprints and fossils of camels, pygmy running rhinos, saber-toothed cats and elephant-like animals bigger than cows but smaller than bison.

Drivers regularly zip right through the Interstate 15 corridor between Barstow and the state line, giving little thought to what pleasures might be found just off the highway. They may stop for fuel or fast food, but usually they just enjoy the 65 m.p.h. speed limit, ignoring exit signs for Zzyzx, Calico and Yermo. Those road signs are probably overshadowed anyway by the glitzy Las Vegas billboards advertising hotels, casinos and coming celebrity appearances.

Long ago, in another lifetime far, far away, I used to drive out to Barstow once a week to read the strain gages on deep space antennas. This was in the early 1980s, when I worked at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in La Canada as part of the Deep Space Network (DSN). The strain gages monitored any unscheduled movement of the antennas, such as might be caused by an earthquake.
