Eastern Sierra Forum / Miracle
« on: March 22, 2018, 07:46:01 AM »
I am a relative Newbie to the ES. Only making trips up there for past 9 years. I have often heard the term "March Miracle"........are we witnessing one? I saw a ton of pics of Mammoth over Christmas and there was zero snow except for on the runs. I also read that the snow-pack was less than 5%.........Things changed since the Calendar went to March that's for sure and it looks like a dump-fest has been happening ever since!

Hope you all are surviving the winter blues........ :cold:

Eastern Sierra Trip Reports / Just a little late
« on: February 11, 2014, 08:13:05 PM »
I am sure I am not the only one with cabin fever and itching for the 2014 season to get underway. Since the board is sooooo slow with inactivity I thought I would post a report that I meant to post back in August.........never got around to it....maybe it had something to do with having four kids 4 yrs old and under and being busy doesnt even begin to describe my life these days =)  ......so here it goes!

Spent 5 days at East Fork (sites 112-114) the third week in August with my two oldest boys Caleb and Micah (4 and 3yrs old) and a few other family members. It was an awesome time...... perfect weather, fish in the creek and the lake, diminishing crowds, and killer pie. Here are some pics......enjoy!

Always do a roadside outbound pic .....somewhere near Big Pine


Our favorite site.....creekside


Our loaded pool 20 feet from tent......kids looped the trout in there


Caleb and Micah at Heart Lake


Mr. Micah......coolest lil hiker I've ever seen =)


Swedish Candle........perfect cooktop


This was heaven.......kids played in the inlet.....grown ups fished around the corner...........perfect!


The catch


The view I think about almost everyday


Sorry for the tardy report....hopefully it got your adrenalin  flowing for the upcoming season.......First trip for 2014 is planned for Mid May.........Kids ask about it weekly......WE CANNOT WAIT!!!!! Thanks to all your contributions......been lurking around and very lightly contributing for past 4 years........wealth of knowledge to learn on here......hope to cross paths with some of you one day up there....
