The Nevada Test Site, where many dozens of atomic bomb tests were conducted in the 1950s and '60s. Yucca Flat is in the foreground and Area 51, part of the Nevada Test and Training Range, is at the round Groom Lake, above. In the middle is Papoose Lake. See Notes for more. [Later... Alas, Flickr killed Notes. So here goes:note that the pock marks to the left of the dry lake bed are all collapsed surfaces above underground nuclear blasts.
