DescriptionMono Lake is a unique lake and ecosystem in the high desert of California just outside of Yosemite Park. Creeks flow into the lake, but there is no outlet. For years the fresh incoming water was diverted to Southern California and the lake level was dropping and the ecosystem changing. There was a movement of supporters to 'save Mono Lake' and in 1995, the water diversion was limited until the lake level returned to normal.The towers of rocks are calcium carbonate and form over hundres of years.
