This is a beautiful, protected area in the White Mountains on the east side of Owens Valley.

The rock was hard to find but well worth it and we got a bonus of a spectacular sunrise.

Stop 4: Mono Lake Tufa State Natural Reserve

This was our first time here. the weather was great and the camping was free so no complaining here.

Some friends had told me about this lake the year before so we drove up and were not disappointed.
