Mono Lake Tufas at Sunrise

Mono Lake is a 70 square mile, alkaline, inland sea with a salinity level ~2X that of the oceans. The lake’s alkaline pH of 10, high concentrations of carbonate and bicarbonate and the calcium provided by the underground springs yeild the ideal conditions to form the mysterious structures known as tufas.
