These awesome little ditties are quite fragile structures called tufa towers. They are made of calcium carbonate (limestone) that precipitated out of old groundwater springs when Mono Lake was at a higher level than that of the the present day. In one respect they are testaments to the alkalinity of the lake. Nov 14, 2018
