Default Mono Lake in Winter

Just back from a Thanksgiving trip to Lake Tahoe. On the way we went off the beaten path to the south part of Mono Lake, not far from Mammoth Lakes. A heavy snow had fallen and we were driving with chains on our little Prius hybrid. It was worth the effort, and we were the only ones there due to the snow and cold. What do you think?

That's the Sierra Nevada mountain range in the background.

Shot #3 Mono Lake covers 70 sq. mi. and sits between the arid Great Basin and the snowy Sierra Nevada mountains. Elevation is about 6,000 ft.

Nice, Walter...!

Are those formations caused by erosion or mineral deposits...?

Nice shots Walter. It looks freezing.


I have driven by there many times and have always wanted to stop but never have. We were always in a hurry to fish.

Thanks for sharing.

When do we get to see your Tahoe pics. Tahoe has got to be one of the most beautiful and cold places on earth.
