Photographer's Note

Sunrise silhouette at the north shore of Mono Lake in Lee Vining.

The first shoot of the first TrekEarth California summit began with a sunrise at Mono Lake near the tiny village of Lee Vining along the Eastern Sierra mountains.

The north shore of Mono Lake features smaller but more numerous tufa formations than the south shore. In this shot you can see the larger south shore tufa in the distance. Mono Lake is also a large rookery for California gulls. It seems difficult to take a picture here without them somewhere in the frame. And here it was no different as you can see a few in the sky.

I'd like to thank the TE members who all traveled a great distance to attend the summit. Your made it a truly memorable weekend. This group was outstanding, all classy, friendly and helpful people.

And who knew taking pictures all day could be so tiring. I think I'll need a few days to recover. Can't wait to do it again next year!

Regards,
Doug
