Mono LakeOkay so why didn't we get boxes last week and where are the farm pictures? Leo went to a Sercal Conference at Mammoth. On the way home we went for a tour of Mono Lake. Now that I've been in the Spring, I think I'd like to go back in the summer, if they get one. The folks at Mammoth are expecting snow until July! Of course in July it might be nice to be in some ice cold snow.
