“Photography at Mono Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Cold Winter mornings are a fine time to photograph the Tufa formations at the south side of Mono Lake, with the snowy Sierra mountains in the background. With the normal wind, ice crystal formations are also great if you have the patience to photograph them in challenging glare light.

The park rangers there are very nice. We were able to blow up a raft and paddle around the formations. Super cool to see!
