New Westy Session is live! (link in bio) Featuring @_quattlebaum performing “Try” alongside a 1990 Vanagon Syncro Full Camper. Born and raised in Savannah, Georgia, Austin Quattlebaum’s sound is rich with southern marshland blues. He calls Portland, Oregon, home these days, but his roots still shine through beautifully.

Full Descend on Bend Recap video link in bio.
The fourth year of descend on bend was spectacular: hundreds of like-minded, life-loving folks gathered outside of Bend, Oregon, to revel in all things vanlife.

Jon McNealy has been with GoWesty for almost nine years. He’s best known as the literal “face” of GoWesty, acting in scores of videos and becoming a Westy Life cult classic. We’re going to miss the hell out of him, and we’re sincerely hoping that he returns after a sabbatical in the PNW. Farewell, Professor—you’ll always find love at GoWesty!
The lack of an outlet causes high levels of salts to accumulate in Mono Lake. These salts also make the lake water alkaline. Underneath the lake, underwater springs pump calcium-saturated water through the lake bed. When the spring water meets the alkaline lake water, calcium and carbonate salts react to form insoluble calcium carbonate (limestone), which precipitates out, settling in mineral deposits around the spring. Over centuries these deposits gradually grow into towering columns which can reach heights of up to nine metres (30 feet) called Tufa. Tufa can only form underwater, so it is only if lakes are drained or dry out over many years that the towers are exposed.
