Mono Lake: Totally Worth a 45-Minute Visit
If I’d stayed longer, maybe I would have spotted a brine shrimp! Although 45 minutes was plenty to spot one coyote (not pictured below). He wasn’t as friendly as my coyote spirit guide I met in La Mesa though.
I took pictures, then.
- It cost $3 to park there.
- There were two other parties there at the same time as me.
- Only two of the 12 porta-johns were unlocked. The unlocked ones have a sign that says “this one open”, while the locked ones communicate nothing, except through their obstinance.
- Not far from Mammoth.
- The water is very still.
- Considers itself similar to the Great Salt Lake, just the opposite side of the basin.
That’s about all I got, I guess. Tufas. Mono Lake. Salt. Near Mammoth. 45 minutes, 50 for brine shrimp or slow-walkers.
