Mono Lake from Navy Beach

A self-supported trip created by Pertribe135

Trip Overview

Launched at Navy Beach on Mono Lake near Lee Vining CA and paddled past the fantastic tufa formations. The alkaline nature of the lake makes the water a fantastic color that changes based on depth and time of day. Saw an osprey sitting on a nest on one of the taller tufas. Lots of shorebirds. Paddled over toward Pahoa Island and back.


Check the wind forecast, this lake is notorious for heavy winds coming up quickly
