for the Mono Lake Website
The Mono Lake Committee thanks the generous photographers who have donated the use of their work to us.
The panning images on our homepage change with the seasons:
During cold storms, snow reaches all the way down from the Sierra Nevada to Mono Lake, blanketing the tufa towers. Photo by Geoff McQuilkin.
Chickadees stick around all year instead of migrating, and their cheery "cheeseburger!" calls enliven the quiet winter landscape. Photo by Santiago Escruceria.
Last winter storm after storm blanketed the Sierra Nevada with heavy snow, leading to a four-foot rise for Mono Lake last summer as it all melted. Photo by Santiago Escruceria.
Visitors to Mono Lake are few and far between during the winter, but it's a wonderful season to experience the Mono Basin. Photo by Arya Harp.
