Teakettle Junction.

Wacky Teakettle Junction Sign

21 miles down an okay gravel and rock road from the end of the pavement at Ubehebe Crater loop. Sometimes the rangers go out and thin the kettles. Maybe someone should go out there with a welder and do something artistic with the overload so they won't have to.
