Mono Lake is a saline lake the edge of the arid Great Basin and the Sierra Nevada mountains in California. It’s among the oldest lakes in North America, with some estimates at one to three million years of age. There are no fish in Mono Lake. But the lake is filled with brine shrimp that provides food for the two million migratory birds that nest there every year.
Thanks Chris for this amazing shot of one of America’s oldest and interesting lakes!!
