What people are saying:

Lake Mono, the second largest lake in California, is one of the oldest lakes in North America. It has no outlet and is evaporated, leaving a large amount of salt deposits in the lake, which is more than twice the salinity of the normal seawater. Lake Mono is in a desert of lifeless grass, eight thousand feet above sea level, surrounded by mountains 2,000 feet above the surface of the lake, the peaks are covered with mist all year round. This majestic, serene, sailing sea oyster, the most desolate inhabitant of the most desolate corners of the earth, has not touched much of the surrounding landscape. It was a vast pool of grey water, a hundred miles round, two small islands in the centre, nothing but the uplifted crust and lava of the volcano, such as snow, a pile of grey pumice and ash, and the curving lava slopes of dead volcanoes, The lake had been sealed and flooded into the huge dead crater.

    Try a float

    Lovely lake with dark history in water use. Great one mile loop trail to see tufa. Try a swim! Amazing how easy it is to float. Bottom is rocky and all the shrimp disconcerting but it wasn’t as grimy...
