Mono County Events for Scenic Adventure Seekers
MONO COUNTY, Calif. - After record-setting snowfall that refilled lakes and rivers, leaving glistening snow on high peaks and meadows below, Mono County has a wide range of events this summer and fall offering all sorts of excuses to come up and enjoy the natural beauty.
From family events to athletic challenges, music and art weekends Mono County has a full calendar of fun for any taste.
The Graniteman Challenge, sponsored by the High Sierra Triathlon Club, is a unique three-day combination of the Granite to Granite Swim, a 2.4-mile swim in June Lake on Sept. 8, the Mammoth Gran Fondo, a 102-mile bike ride, Sept. 9, and the Tioga Pass Run, a 12.4-mile run up Tioga Pass on Sunday, Sept. 10.
