Default Red Lake (a dry lake bed) - where is it?

Does anyone know where "red lake" is? Here is a picture

Red Lake North of Town - Kingman Photo Album - [domain blocked due to spam]

I think it may be in Mojave county near Kingman but not sure. There is a little town called Red Lake in the NE part of the state but I think this dry lake bed is different than the town.

Just a guess.

Looks like there's a big dry lake bed about 40 miles north of Kingman.

kdog, I love that picture! It's like the song says "Arizona, has anybody even seen it all?". I have got to get to the NW part one of these years.

Why thank you, sir! No, I'm quite convinced nobody has ever seen it all, especially when one takes into account all the dirt roads. There are 100,000 abandoned mines mostly in the mountains of Arizona, all connected by a matrix of dirt roads. It's endless.

I heard about a "Red Lake" on a land sailing bulletin board. If your not familiar with land sailing - these are craft with wheels and a sail, typically will do 40 to 80 mph (using wind only) and are primarily used on dry lake beds like Kdog's picture.

Ive apparently driven through "Red Lake" on Hwy 160 in the Indian reservation and unless the dry lake bed is well hidden, this is not the place.

But the lake bed North of Kingman looks like it probably is the "Red Lake" where the land sailing can be done.

Yeah, it would be perfect for that. Perfectly flat, huge open space with nothing to hit, and the place is almost always windy.

By the way, is the best way to get to Red Lake by taking Stockton Hill Road off of I40 in Kingman? Looking at the Google sat maps, looks like Stockton Hill road goes right by the dry lake bed.

Looks like Stockton Hill road is also a Kingman exit off the I40 freeway?
