Tufas of Mono Lake

Tufas of Mono Lake

The lake waters of Mono Lake are very alkaline, and super saturated in salts. Underground springs rich in carbonates form these towers of deposits called tufas. Originally tufas were all underwater. But California's demand for water has drastically lowered the water level...exposing the tufa deposits.
