Description

What you see here is the South Tufa Grove at the South end of Mono Lake. A Tufa is essentially common limestone. The calcium carbonate precipitates (settles out of solution as a solid) around the spring, and over the course of decades to centuries, a tufa tower will grow. Tufa towers grow exclusively underwater, and some grow to heights of over 30 feet.
