Next time I came up to Mammoth Lakes was during the weekend of 4th of July.  Some photos of Horseshoe Lake from last year and this year.  What a difference a year makes!

Took the Gondola to the Top of Mammoth Mountain.  The sign  was just about buried under the snow!

Cross Country skiing in the Mammoth Lakes Basin.  Can anybody guess what frozen lake I'm standing on?

Tamarack Cross Country Ski Center is a great way to explore the Mammoth Lakes Basin on snowshoes or Nordic skis.  Great family fun (my kids learned fast), with over 19 miles of groomed trails.  It’s free for hiking on a packed trail or for snowshoeing, they only charge for a trail pass on the groomed trails and flat skating lanes within the corridor using cross-country skis.

Eastern Sierra Forum / Re: R.J. Secor Passes Away

I have the “The High Sierra: Peaks, Passes, Trails” paperback by R.J. Sector.  Not a hiking trail guide, but a mountaineering book guide for treks off trail on cross-country travel for hikers who want to go beyond the well maintained trails.  That describes me to a tee!  Rest well.

There is no doubt that he is will be remembered as one of the greatest American climbers of the 20th century.  Though he was not the first to summit Everest, his accomplishments tower over most other American climbers.  I have a couple of his books, with “Mountains of North America” being my favorite as it cover the Sierra Nevada Mountains.  He will be missed by the climbing community.  Rest in Peace.

I usually go to Yosemite 3-6 times a year, so the annual pass looks like the best deal for now.

If you want to see where last winter’s snow made the most impact, head up to Mammoth Lakes!  With 55 feet of snow last winter, Mammoth Mountain had an epic year.  Took a few long weekends in Mammoth this past winter, as our family loves skiing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, etc. 

Just a few amazing photos from our trips:
