I had Bartche Miller from the Mono Lake Committee come give an amazing talk on the geology and natural history of the Sierra Nevada.
Painting on the shore of Lake George. Because of the record snowfall this year there was still a huge amount of snow on the ground above 9000 ft. Some of the lakes I was planning on taking the group were still frozen over and under 8 feet of snow and probably wont be open till the end of July.Mono county is one of the least populated counties in California, there are no cities nearby to cause light pollution, this makes for an amazing night sky.
After a day of painting we went down to South Tufa at Mono Lake to watch the sunset. Cody was the only one with the energy to pull off another painting.
