The Pyramid is a sacred place on the East Shore. No one but the Tribe is allowed there. There are many beautiful places along the shoreline to stop and soak in the Beauty of the Lake.

The Needles are off limits to everyone, But from a distance they are grand monuments rising from the salty sea where dust storms blow and water boils.
