Pinnacles National Natural Landmark is quite remarkable, yet it is not that easy to find. It is between Ridgecrest and Trona. But we didn’t see any sign until we made the turn to the dirty road.
The place is so dry and full of salt. Yet, life survives in this barren desert environment—Desert Five-Spot is a beautiful little flower. It is hard to imagine such delicate flower can flourish in this hush, desolate location. This is the first time I’ve seen Desert Five-Spot in person. I had seen pictures and ever since then I wished I could see it in its natural habitat. Wishes do come true—it happened to me many, many times. 🙂
