Starting in Mariposa we decided to cross the Tioga Pass Highway (between 6-10,000 ft).
I tried pancakes – yuck, never again!
Setting off early we had no traffic as we ran for 5 minutes down to Mono Lake proper, what a weird place. The flies are thick here and it hums but that’s mainly because Los Angeles has had it’s water from here since the ’30s and the Lake has dropped 45 feet!
The last pic shows the view as you climb up on to the Blue Star, a great road with a strange custom of 000’s of stickers from all over the world stuck on the armco.
Basically Nevada is like California with more guns, smoking and lots of casinos – every bar has slot machines in the bar!
It also has beer in jars!
