2/28/2017 Trona Pinnacles, CA (3.5 miles) - This is my second visit here. Still I can’t believe that this pinnacles were originated under the water bottom of the Searless Lake, calcium carbonate (tufa) bubbled up to create those pinnacles, currently dry land. It is beautiful place to be. Over thirty film projects are shot tufa pinnacles each year.

2/24/2017 Ord Mountain, CA (6.4 miles) - This is my #12 CA P2K. On the dirt road hike all the way to the summit. The road is not using for while and for maintain the towers at the summit, seems to they use a helicopter rather than to drive up. The Ord Mountain was not visible for long time, when started hiking, I thought another mountain was Ord Mountain.
