Description

The dramatic tufa towers emerge from the surface of Mono Lake, under windswept winter clouds with the snow-covered Sierra Escarpment behind them. Although snow accumulates along the shore and on the tufa towers the lake does not form ice due to the salinity of the water. At 79.8 g/l it is far saltier than the ocean at an average salt content of 31.5 g/l.
