Mono Lake

Mono LakeMono LakeMono LakeMono LakeMy first blog post. As a lifelong New Yorker recently turned Angeleno, I’ve been capitalizing on all the amazing road trips California has to offer! Everything from forests to desert to seaside, I’ve spent the past few months since relocating road tripping practically every weekend. I can’t wait to share them all, but first Mono Lake.

Mono Lake has been on my bucket list for ages. After camping right outside Yosemite National Park at the Tioga Lake campground, the lake is an easy drive from the park in the town of Lee Vining.

With high levels of salt, Mono lake has no fish and feels slippery to touch (twice as salty as the ocean!). The water looks thick, almost like oil. It’s most known for its Tufa structures; towers of limestone that have formed in the lake. We watched both sunset and sunrise over the tufa towers. It was a breathtaking view watching the sun over this lunar landscape.
