The Majestic Natural Mono Lake of California

5565
Mono Lake is an exclusive lake, and it is obliged of that fact to human beings and the civilization which attacks nature. The beautiful Mono Lake is actually a salty and alkaline lake. There are four to seven trillion brine shrimp living in the lake as well as millions of alkali flies that live both in the water and along the shore.
Various limestone figures called tufa are shown from water. Mono Lake is located at a height of 1945 meters. Its area is about 150 square kilometers and the average depth is 43 meters. There are several lakes with similar parameters on the Earth. But exactly where the astonishing sculptures are shown from water.
Every sculpture is a distinctive one, and they are walls of the ancient dead city or an army created from the dragon’s teeth that stand here and protect the last borders. But the secret of the fantastic towers is more than banal. In the middle of the XX century, to satisfy the needs in the water of Los Angeles they had to take water from the local rivers.
As a consequence, the lake’s level affectedly fell by 15 meters uncovering the calciferous-tuff figures from the water. The program devoted to the safety of the distinctive lake the Mono Lake Committee was created in 1978.
However, in 1994, the California State Water Resources Control Board reached a conclusion that mandated that the lake had to rise to a level of 6,392 feet above sea level. Therefore, after this, the lake’s level started to rise and, perhaps, in the future these idols will hide their secrets under the water column again.
