Eastern Sierra's Mono Lake features its other worldly, calcium carbonate tufa structures. They were formed over centuries when super-heated, mineral laden spring water percolated into the alkaline lake causing a chemical reaction to create the towers. When fresh water streams were diverted to southern California, the lake lowered surface revealed the tufa. Winds whip up the lake which is twice as salty as the ocean and blow sea foam onto the shore.
