I was looking through a travel magazine and came upon these amazing images of something called Tufas. I researched them and found out that they were in Mono Lake in Lee Vining, California. So we planned an RV trip from Miami to photograph them. We were there for several days before venturing into Yosemite N.P. We photographed every sunrise and sunset to capture this magical place.
The history about Mono lake and it's importance to migrating birds is another amazing story in itself. Mono lake is one of 2 inland seas in the U.S. the other being Salt Lake in Utah. Back in the '60's the City of Los Angeles decided to build aqueducts to capture the runoff from the snow melt in the Sierras. Even though the lake was fed by underground springs (which formed the Tufas) it was not enough and the lake level was dropping. A group of motivated residents decided to sue the City of Los Angeles and won thereby agreeing to leave the lake at that level but to take enough runoff for the lake and the rest for Los Angeles. This place is a definite bucket list item!!
