Pictures Of Mono Lake Tufa SNR State Natural Reserve

Photo gallery of Mono Lake Tufa SNR State Natural Reserve pictures photographed by professional photographer Rolf Hicker.

A year round destination, Mono Lake Tufa SNR (State Natural Reserve) is equally as beautiful in winter as it is in summer.

During the winter months, snow sparkles on the calcium-carbonate spires and along the Mono Lake shoreline. Though there is limited traffic access to the reserve, there are cross-country skiing opportunities to access the more snowbound areas.

During the spring/summer months, the reserve bakes under the hot California sun and visitors come to camp, boat, and photograph plus to view the fascinating tufa towers.

Many migratory birds use the lake as a resting point along their way to other destinations while other birds nest there. The Mono Lake Tufa SNR State Natural Reserve was established to protect both the habitat of nesting and migratory birds, plus the water levels of the lake itself which in turn supports a wide variety of wildlife and plant life.
