TRONA PINNACLES, ONE OF THE MOST UNUSUAL GEOLOGIC WONDERS IN THE CALIFORNIA DESERT. This landscape consists of more than 500 tufa (calcium carbonate) pinnacles rising from the bed of the Searles Dry Lake basin. These tufa spires were formed underwater, 10,000 to 100,000 years ago, when Searles Lake established a link in an interconnected chain of Pleistocene lakes stretching from Mono Lake to Death Valley.
