More Evidence of Harsh Winter Emerging at Mono Lake?

The remains of several wild horses have been discovered near the saltwater lake in the eastern Sierra, according to a story published today by the San Francisco Chronicle.

Personnel with the Forest Service said the deaths were likely tied to heavy snowfall, a product of atmospheric rivers that swept across the state through March.

The first storm hit on December 31.

The horses likely migrated into the area from the Montgomery Pass HMA.
