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.

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.

I haven't done enough cross country to have needed his books much but there is no other referenced or recommended more than his guides. He must have been a heck of a guy.

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 found this post on another Eastern Sierra climbing oriented site. Hope this is the 'right' or best section for posting it on this board as it is not a trip report and is a form of 'MEDIA'    :-)

Simply, Truly Fascinating. :bowdown:
