Photographer's Note

We met most of the members for the first time at the Mono Inn. It was surprising to find such an excellent restaurant in this very small town; however, the lack of a MacDonald’s showed the town’s good taste. While we waited for the others to arrive we enjoyed an Ansel Adams exhibit as well as a nice but non-tufa view of Mono Lake. Lee Vining has become a lightening rod for environmentalists over the issue of water resources. Their successful battle encouraged other areas of Owens Valley to fight the Los Angeles Metropolitan Water District (LAMWD ) for a bit of the water that passes through this area from the Sierras. LAMWD had maintained that that they bought the water rights in the early 1900s and they had no obligation to share.

In deference to the time people spent writing critiques, I've posted suggested corrections in the WS rather than doing a repost.
