Recommend you stop by this place if you are interested in the Mono lake area. They have all the information, maps, books, and trinkets you need.

This is a beautiful visitor's center. Make sure you go here and to the Mono Lake Committee book store. It has a well-done, educational museum section and a gorgeous view of Mono Lake with a trail that goes right to the edge of the lake.

Great place to learn the history and the geology of Mono Lake. Also, it has a great view of most of Mono Lake! Here's a virtual scene of the center and the lake at http://2piVR.com/MonoLake/

This was my first time to Mono Lakes and this place had fantastic views of the lake and it was very informative about the geology of this beautiful area. It is a must if you visit the area or are just passing through like we were.

The Mono Lake visitor center is fairly new and a beautiful building with a fantastic overlook of Mono Lake. The displays were very well done and interesting. The history and ecology of the lake are fascinating.
