Camping at Mono Lake

After sunset, we bumped our way slowly down the Cottonwood Canyon Road to Mono Lake. My little economy car probably isn’t the best for dirt roads, but it works. Sometimes.

We found a dispersed campsite, popped a beer and cooked some noodles. The Sierra crest over the lake was beautiful in the moonlight.

In the morning we headed down to the lake shore to say hello to the flies and shrimp. Surprisingly, the fly population was small and I didn’t see a single shrimp. Totally different than past visits to the lake. Perhaps populations are down because it’s the fall?

The leisurely morning extended to breakfast at “the usual” in Lee Vinning.

At the picnic grounds. This was my second time camping at Mono this summer. My Presidio Trust volunteer hat makes me look like a cop.
