Pyramid Lake outing

 
Walking down towards the lake.



 
Some of the odd calcium deposits, called 'tufa'.

 
Me, fascinated by the 'tufa' on the shores of the lake.

 
Again, me, wondering what this stuff is and how it was formed and how long it took to get there.

 
We all liked climbing all over the 'tufa'.



 
The tufa took all kinds of shapes and forms, some looked like brain coral. It was very jagged and rough stuff, and some of it would break apart really easily.
