Barker Dam, Joshua Tree National Park, California, USA

This dam was built by cattlemen in the 1800s to expand a natural pool to hold water for their livestock.  The pond fills occasionally in wet years, shows a few puddles in the spring of typical years, and is bone dry during dry years.  Since the transition of the land from ranching to public lands and inclusion within the national park, the pond has become an important water source for the animals in the area.
