The Pit

Football in the dirt is a tradition in Trona in San Bernardino County, where grass is tough to grow in the heat and saline soil. Trona’s high school football team plays on a unique field of sand and rock known simply as the Pit. The field, seen in this audio slideshow, is a profound symbol of the town’s perseverance in the face of economic calamity.
