Claypans, like eagle's nests are another good natural landmark that can be used to help navigation in remote desert areas. Tracks in the desert will generally go around a claypan as they can hold water after rain and may pose a hazard by becoming sticky - vehicles can become bogged in extremely wet claypans in the desert. However, when dry, claypans are generally very hard.
