Turns out the light was amazing. I didn't get there a second too late. Right now Mono Lake is a work in progress--for my photography and for the lake itself.

By the time LA stopped diverting water in 1994 the lake had lost a third of its water. Right now the lake is 34 feet lower than it was in 1941; but is now slowing rising. The goal is 9 feet higher that is is right now. This will make these Tufas (a calcium carbonate formation from [formerly] underwater springs) disappear underwater.
