This stop was an unexpected interesting and pleasant experience. Mono Lake is in the extreme western
side of the Great Basin. It is the sister lake to the Great Salt Lake in Utah. It contains 2.4 times the amount
of salt as the ocean.|
We are driving down highway US 395 which runs north to south on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada mountains. The moisture is dropped on the western side of the mountains so this side is dry but still very scenic.
