Trona Pinnacles - January 2010

The Trona Pinnacles are located in the Mojave Desert, about 20 miles east of Ridgecrest. These tufa towers were formed when the area was covered by an ancient lake. Several movies, including Start Trek V, were filmed there. We went to the Pinnacles for the first time on New Year's Day, and the sky was somewhat uncooperative during the visit...

There was a nice sunset over the Mojave on the way home, however. Perhaps we left the Pinnacles a wee bit too early.
