MWT: Day 2: Mono Lake Tufa State Reserve


Thanks to the My World team, Klaus, Sandy, Ivar, Wren, Louise and Fishing Guy for making this a world wide event. Click the badge above and join us!

Day 1 of our 5-day trip to the Eastern Sierras, that includes Mammoth Lakes, Mono Lake, Bodie, Bishop, Lone Pine and countless of SURPRISES.  My assistant cum daughter Zee has carefully planned the details.

Day 2 in the afternoon,  took us to Mono Lake, where you can see the “tufas” or limestone towers.  These are mineral structures created when fresh water springs bubble up and mix with alkaline waters of the lake.  It is also a haven of birds, seagulls and millions of other migrating birds.

Tufa  Reserve & Westways Mag -A

The model is posing behind the tufas, the cover of Westways (AutoClub Magazine) for their June, 2009 issue that she received on Friday.   It is also her submission to Westways’ PICTURE THIS.
“Take your Westways on vacation with you and have yourself photographed with it. Send the photo to, and we might run it in an upcoming issue”.

Also, the model is wearing a pajama set that she got from Walmart, 100% cotton, very wearable for the summer-like weather. Giggles!

So, did she pass the screen test?

    You passed the screen test – of course! :) You look so happy on the shot, and you make the perfect foreground to those great “tufas”! Remarkable what a meeting between different types of water can do!

    Continue enjoying your holiday!

    I think she’s a winner! The tufas are so amazing and remind me of drip style sand castles. Your whole trip is through some awesome country. Zee made some good choices.

  5. The tufas are fascinating structures. Very cute model, too!

    She certainly did pass the screen test and I am off to Walmart. That’s a real cute pj set that looks lovely. Good luck with the photo. It’s a great one. I enjoyed the tufus in the background and I noticed what looks like a crow sitting on one of them on the left of your picture maybe? That water looks lovely enough to take a dip in. I bet it’s hot out there isn’t it? Have a great time!!!! I am envious, chuckles :)

    The tufas are amazing. We didn’t get that far into the tufas so you are very lucky to get that far.

    I guess if I opened my magazine once in a while I would have notice that they’re taking vacation photos. The model is great but I’m a little distracted by that beautiful background. :-)
