The local highway project designed to control rockfall—and, thanks to Mono Lake Committee member involvement, to stop erosion and to achieve slope revegetation—starts today. The slopes adjacent to Mono Lake that are pictured below will receive the first treatment. Read more on our web page devoted to the project.

    We travelled to Lake Tahoe from San Diego via Tioga Road on May 13th, the day before the storms started. The road was clear of snow, but there was lots of road construction, starting before Crane Flats. It took a long time to get to the top, but it was worth it. Even with cloudy skies the view from Olmsted Point was spectacular. Just a short while after passing Lee Vining we hit the road construction along Mono Lake. Thankfully there was not much delay there. It was late enough for road work to have stopped and the controlled one lane traffic worked well. I am glad that hazard is being repaired. Mono Lake was beautiful in the evening light.
