I just returned from the most amazing journey with my best friend and love, Darius Twin. We spent the week traveling up the 395N for my birthday, stopping at all of our favorite locations, plus stumbling upon a few surprise locations along the way. I am so excited to show you all of the photos from our adventure, but I wanted to start with this series at Mono Lake. I love this place. Anytime we happen to be close by, we always stop to explore it. This time we discovered a hot spring near by! It's forbidden to swim in it - up to 6 months in jail? - but maybe, just maybe I will swim in it one day ^_^ In case you are wondering what those large formations are in the photos above, they are tufa towers - aka limestone. How crazy are those things? Surreal, eh?
