First Light at Trona Pinnacles
Where is that? Is that on Earth? Does anyone else enjoy finding places that make you question where you really are? There are many bizarre local landscapes that can give us this sense of something alien. The Trona Pinnacles were formed from springs below the surface of an ancient lake pumping mineral rich water up from the ground. This minerals built up into towers over time, only to be revealed to sunlight as the lake subsided. This location has been featured in sci-fi movies and television, including Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica. Mojave Desert, 2017.
