Mono is the westernmost basin of the Basin and Range province, which stretches across western North America between the Rocky Mountains and Sierra Nevada. In the heart of the Basin lies the majestic Mono Lake, a quiet inland sea nestled amidst the Sierra Mountains. Estimated between one million and three million years of age, Mono Lake is one of the oldest continuous lakes in North America. It is a "terminal" lake, which means that it has no outlet water flow. Thus fresh water flows in and can only leave through evaporation. For this reason the lake has a high content of salt. It is nearly three times saltier than the Pacific Ocean and 1,000 more alkaline than fresh water. A chemical twin of Mono Lake exists nowhere in the world; the closest kin would be found no closer than equatorial Africa. There are many trails here. The Lee Vining Creek Nature Trail is about 1 mile long and is located next to the Mono Basin National Forest Scenic Area Visitor Center. You can also get information about other hikes and trails at the visitor's center.
