Last year friends and members of the Mono Lake Committee raised over $4,100 for Mono Lake just by clicking a link!

This link allows the Mono Lake Committee to benefit from purchases made on Amazon. Every time the link is used to access Amazon for online shopping the Mono Lake Committee receives 5% of those sales as an Amazon Affiliate. (That’s right—5%!)

Since we became a part of this effective program, we have been steadily increasing the funds raised each year, and 2015 was our most successful year yet—marking a 52% increase from 2014!

Take a look at this graph, and it becomes apparent that our wonderful members and friends have been spreading the word about this great way to raise money for the Mono Lake Committee. So, remember to keep us in mind when you do your online shopping, and continue sharing this link with your friends and family—let’s make 2016 another chart-topping year!

Over the summer, when I gave tours at South Tufa, visitors often asked me, “What does it look like here in the winter?” Since I had only spent summers in the Sierra, I honestly wasn’t sure. I knew the Sierra crest would probably be snow-covered, and possibly the Mono Craters, but I couldn’t say anything for certain. Now I have been fortunate enough to spend my first winter in the Mono Basin, and what an amazing season it has been so far—from frozen streams to snow-covered tufa to all the animal tracks which are suddenly visible after a snow shower.

I still rejoice every time it snows, even when it is just a few flurries, and not only because I grew up outside Atlanta where we were lucky to get a single dusting of snow each year, but because I know each snow flake is another drop of water for Mono Lake which is exactly what we need, especially during this record drought. Enjoy these snowy photos from this winter and let’s hope for much more to come in the weeks ahead!
