Bizarre and Beautiful Tufa Towers of Mono Lake in California



Mono Lake is one of the most beautiful natural resorts where you should go if you are visiting California.  One of the most interesting and attractive things which can be seen in Mono Lake are tufa towers which became visible when the water level of the lake fell because of higher demand for water use amongst people who lived in neighbor.

Tufa towers are actually rocks which were formed of carbonate materials. When water level in Mono Lake fell, it left those beautiful towers visible. People who come and see them and don’t know the way how they are formed, will feel like they are in some alien-like environment because of pretty strange and logically impossible shapes of those rocks.
