"Trona Pinnacles!" Trona by sabe

Trona Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 60 photos

Trona means to sit on the throne, to look down at the lower ones below in Swedish. Funny enough it's quite suitable for this rather remarcable place in the middle of the desert. Trona was my first stop on a week-long ghost-town hunt in the Californian and Nevadian deserts. Trona is not a ghost town by any means, but still definately worth the wash-board like dirt roads leading there.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Sandy, hot and salty
  • Cons:Far far from Sweden
  • In a nutshell:Desert!

    Interesting shots, like many other's of this trip; as if shot through a pinhole camera. Strange but effective. :)
