Mono Lake

So, we're up in the Sierras for a few days and having a nice break from our 100+ desert temps!  It was 44 degrees up here near June Lake Friday night, but last night was much colder due to the wind moving.  We threw an extra blanket on the bed and were nice and toasty!  Yesterday afternoon we wanted to drive down to Mammoth Lakes and buy gasoline and groceries and when we did, we noticed thunderheads building up over the desert.  So, off we went to Mono Lake.  You really need some clouds in the background (I believe...) to get better pics of the lake.  They just add another whole dimension to the place.  We got there about 5:00 p.m. and stayed for about an hour and a half.  If you drive to Mono Lake, be sure you visit the SOUTH tufa exit.  The north one doesn't have these tall limestone towers.
