    The Alien World of Mono Lake, NV

     
    Traveling down from the High Sierras, the journey from Lake Tahoe to Mono Lake is filled with memorable vistas. Nothing along the way the way prepared us for the other-worldliness of Mono Lake. These limestone formations, called Tufa, are created when underwater springs, rich in calcium meet the carbonate rich water looming above. They build up slowly and have become more visible as lake levels retreated. Walking among the Tufa, on a brisk sunny day with the wind occasionally howling, left us feeling a million miles from nowhere.
