If you follow Swansea-Cerro Gordo Road, you’ll come to the ruins of the Saline Valley Salt Tram. The salt tram carried buckets of salt up and over the Inyo Mountains so that the salt could be loaded into rail cars and carried to market. The summit crossover station is one of several remnants of the salt tram, which operated from 1913 to 1936.
