This candid Mono Lake Moment follows Black Bear (Ursus americanus) tracks in the snow up a steep hill above Lee Vining and reflects on life in this small unique community filled with character, perched on the edge of the Great Basin, overlooking Mono Lake. You can learn more about the Mono Lake Kutzadika’a Tribe at their official website. If you listen closely, you may hear the gobbling turkeys that live at the house down below the trail!
