    It was like the horizon was on fire as the sun set over the Pacific Ocean. The yellows, oranges, and reds were incredible. The clouds in the foreground ominous. This was snapped right before the Green Flash.

    Sunset in the San Joaquin Valley
    I was in the San Joaquin Valley on a late summer camping trip at the San Luis Reservoir. I grabbed my camera in the early evening, right before sunset, and set out to get some sky shots. This photos shows the dry rolling hills of the California Central Valley, and a peek of the reservoir lake. The last vestiges of the orange sun stand in sharp contrast to the dark blue evening sky and the black hills

    Tufa, the rock formations that "grow" in Mono Lake, is essentially common limestone. What is uncommon about this limestone is the way it forms. Typically, underwater springs rich in calcium (the stuff in your bones) mix with lakewater rich in carbonates (the stuff in baking soda). As the calcium comes in contact with carbonates in the lake, a chemical reaction occurs resulting in calcium carbonate--limestone. The calcium carbonate precipitates (settles out of solution as a solid) around the spring, and over the course of decades to centuries, a tufa tower will grow. Tufa towers grow exclusively underwater, and some grow to heights of over 30 feet. The reason visitors see so much tufa around Mono Lake today is because the lake level fell dramatically after water diversions began in 1941.
