Mono Lake, 2007. Owned by the City of Los Angeles and used for municipal water until the ’80s, when the city was ordered to stop withdrawing water from the lake and to attempt to mitigate the environmental catastrophe visited on this place. It’s risen a few feet since then, but the tufa mounds can still be seen everywhere, and the water quality is still pretty dismal. Looks nice in the winter, though.
