This issue’s cover photos feature the trail that winds through South Tufa down along the shore of Mono Lake. To some, South Tufa is a new discovery, to others it is an old favorite, and for just about anyone who has the chance to visit, it is an eye-opening place of awe and wonder.

Summer brings a full masthead of staff and a busy schedule to the Committee. On the policy front, we’ll be working actively to make sure the plans for modifying South Tufa (see page 4) are appropriate. Your comments are needed! Meanwhile, restoration scientists will be out in the field and statewide water issues (see page 11) will continue to receive attention. Plenty of education activities are underway as usual (see Seminars on pages 26–29).

Many people plan to visit the lake in the summer, and we have all the information and maps needed right here, starting on page 16. Can’t find what you’re looking for? Take a look at for even more news, background, and information.

We’re also planning a Living Lakes restoration conference for this fall (page 9 and, and some of our staff have recently been in Germany (thanks to a grant) for a conference at the Bodensee. In fact, parts of this newsletter were assembled via email from around the world, so we hope you enjoy this issue’s international flare. See you down at the lake!

The following features of the Summer 1999 Mono Lake Newsletter have not been duplicated here because they are similar to sections of the Mono Lake Website that are already available on the World Wide Web. They can also be viewed in the Adobe PDF format file Summer 1999 Mono Lake Newsletter.

Dust storms on Paoha Island make for a dramatic view of the lake from the US Forest Service Visitor Center patio on this windy day in April.
