Yucca Mountain Oversight

Except where the Walker River enters the lake at its northern end, Walker Lake's shores are virtually devoid of major riparian plant growth due, no doubt, to highly variable lake levels. In this respect, Walker Lake's barren shoreline resembles the other classic Great Basin desert terminal lakes (e.g., Pyramid Lake in Nevada, Mono Lake in California, and the Great Salt Lake in Utah).
