MONO LAKE | CALIFORNIA
I was never one for being dirty or dusty which is ironic since some of my favorite places seem to make me just that. Mono Lake being one of them. The times I had visited here I either want to sit down and enjoy the majesty of it all (which turns my butt white) or walk to the farthest point I can see (which gets my shoes & legs covered in "powder").
Besides all that, this place is perfect for silence; even when you happen to be surrounded by people during the high tourist season you can feel as if nothing else exists. Just you and the beauty of your surroundings. My favorite times here have been during sunset watching the golden light shine over the hills in the background of the tufa rock formations which are created due to the high volume of salt in the lake. They have a unique appeal and I can't seem to get enough.
Every season here seems to share something a little different than the others. I am already daydreaming of the first snow fall.
