Guided canoe tours on Mono Lake begin this weekendJune 23rd, 2014 by Mono Lake Committee Staff
This post was written by Julie Curtis, 2014 Mono Lake Intern.
As summer at the Mono Lake Committee comes in to full swing, everybody is eagerly awaiting the start of canoe tours. As a returning Mono Lake Intern to the Committee, I am clued into the excitement all new interns are likely experiencing.
On canoe tour days (Saturdays and Sundays) the early mornings are no deterrent—I know the exhilaration that will occur from being up close and personal with this unique lake. No one can truly understand quite how many brine shrimp inhabit Mono Lake until you witness a cloud of them floating among the lake’s currents with numbers up in the millions. You will never understand the magnificent wonder of tufa towers until you are on the lake’s surface looking up at them while learning these they were created by no more than two different types of water.
We have another great group of seasonal staff gearing up for the upcoming canoe tour season. Lead by our wonderful returning Canoe Coordinator, Julia, and the guidance of our great canoe “admiral,” Gary, we are set to take on the next three months of canoe tours. If you have yet to experience the wonders of Mono Lake from out on the water, it is not too late! Start planning your vacations to the Mono basin for this summer with canoe tours in mind.
Tours start this Saturday, June 28 and will occur through Sunday, September 7 every Saturday and Sunday at 8:00, 9:30, and 11:00am. Check out the canoe page to find out more information. Can’t wait to see you all out there on the water!
