Living at the lake

Friday 2:30 PM-4:30 PM
Trip# 261: Living at the lake
Description: Join Chris Spiller, tour guide with the non-profit Friends of Mono Lake Reserve, for a two-hour tour of state lands north of Lee Vining. You will discover how Indigenous people and early residents made a home next to this unique lake. We’ll hear about farms and ranches that sprang up in the Mono Basin to feed surrounding communities and mining camps in the mid to late 1800s. As we learn about those who made Mono Lake their home, we will enjoy views of the lake and may see marsh and migratory birds. Please wear sturdy walking shoes and bring water, sunscreen, a jacket, a hat, and water. (est. driving miles: 4; hiking difficulty: easy to moderate)
