I've seen the sign to the right of the group in other pictures and there is something I've never understood about that sign. The sign correctly points in the general direction of Trona: twenty-five miles in a southernly direction, notice how the shadow falls from the automobile and the Panamints lie in the east. But, below that accurate message is one giving directions and distance to Granite Wells. Granite Wells is about 55 miles from Ballarat and the sign says 55 so the sign is correct for distance. The problem I have is that Granite Wells is almost due south of Ballarat while the sign is pointing resolutely north.
