Mono Lake

recommendation by goose

The only salt lake in California, Mono Lake is believed to be one of the oldest lakes in the North American continent. While not as massive as the great Salt Lake of Utah, Mono Lake has these great tufa tower formations. The lake has dwindled in size because Los Angeles pipes water from one of its sources, it still has a lot of birds and wildlife.

If you've ever seen Roman Polanski's Chinatown or read about water rights in the USA and/or California this place is especially interesting.
