Toyah Lake is a broad playa fed by intermittent rainfall and Toyah Creek that lies within the Jumano homeland. Although typically dry or only shallowly filled with water, the playa would have served as a watering hole for buffalo in the past and as a stop for migratory birds and other creatures in more recent times. It is likely that Jumano groups visited Toyah Lake on bison hunts. Photo by Susan Dial.
