A few scenes of Mono Lake before we move on to Yosemite National Park.
This was dry land out to the furthest tufa so as you can see progress has been made but it has taken 18 years to gain this much.
Once the mandated level is reached these tufa formations will be surrounded by water but I doubt I will live long enough to witness that sight. The really sad reality of it all is before the Los Angeles County Department of Water and Power began sucking the lake dry (pre 1940) these formations were completely submerged and that is how they were formed. But no one will ever see that sight ever again. Unless we have a big earthquake and southern California drops off into the Pacific Ocean which means Los Angeles County will no longer exist and... I'll stop there.
