10/23/2012  Wildrose Peak, Death Valley, CA - It has nice view from the summit of the Wildrose Peak, we can see the both sides of the mountain ranges, west side is the Sierra Nevada Range, east side is the Amargosa Range and the Wildrose Peak is located on the Panamint Range. The dirt road just before the TH was downgraded from maintained dirt road to un-maintained dirt road, a means tough to drive.
10/22/2012  Trona Pinnacles, CA - Tufa is formed by precipitation of the calcium carbonate by boiling hot springs water in the lake. No water around here now, but it was in the Searless Lake, which exist between 10,000 to 100,000 years ago. It is the same process to the Mono Lake Tufa, however appearance is totally different, here is more large in size and some as high as 140 ft.
10/21/2012  Coso Range Petroglyphs, CA - The location is in the Naval Air Weapons Station in China Lake, CA. The security is very tight and check thoroughly. Only US citizens are allowed on the tours. The petroglyphs are everywhere on the individual rocks in the Little Petroglyph Canyon, there are several more canyons and full of petroglyphs but only this canyon the tour goes.

The Calico Ghost Town is a highly commercialized ghost town, and they charge $10 for admission fee to enter the town. The town is relatively small size but many man-made new and old objects to attract the visitors. The bottle house and Chinese bath tub are unique and fun to see it.
