After a quick Google search, we found out you can actually swim in this lake! We drove out from the Mammoth area, which is a nice, easy drive. Entrance and parking were both free. If you are just going to explore, it is a beautiful...More
Visiting Mono lake if you are near Yosemite is highly recommended. This desert lake has a very unique appearance and biology. It's a very extraterrestrial feeling g and you check out NASA astrobiology research that is done at the lake.

The most unusual aspect of this small lake is the limestone formations around the shore. Looking like corals but sticking above the waterline, they form small towers which I have not seen elsewhere. Look around the water puddles for the zillions of alkali flies as...More
We were traveling the scenic Hwy 395 and so knowing full well that Mono Lake was on it, we definitely wanted to stop. Aside from the interesting landscape -- not something you'll see anywhere else -- it was at best underwhelming. Plus the smell --like...More
Your first glimpse of Mono Lake may be of a bland expanse, save for one large mound in middle and a salt crust around edge, visible even from up high. The pastels of the scenery will stick with you, however: the bushes are a mix...More

You can and we have! The ground is pretty rocky, so water shoes might be a good idea. Our feet really hurt. However, the salt and minerals might leave your shoes a little... different... Also, a shower soon afterwards would be good. We grabbed something to eat at Mono Cone and visited the Upside Down house and felt pretty gross until we got the chance to shower.
