I love the Mammoth area, but it's been awhile for me also.

If you've never been there, be sure to see devils postpile, obsidian dome, Mono Lake and head out to Bodie, nice ghost town. If you ski, still going on until July I think. I always enjoyed going to see the Bristlecone trees also, oldest living things on earth!

Have a great time!!

Wes,

We've been skiing Mammoth for the past 25 years, have a season pass, and we have a good friend that owns a condo right next to Canyon Lodge (old warming hut 2). We have hiked to the Post Pile and Rainbow Falls and even down the mountain. But haven't really been to many of the surrounding campgrounds because most of the time theres snow on the ground.

I was thinking of the Bristlecone pine forrest, that sounds like a good idea. Also Mono Lake.

I'll give a pict story when we get back.

Clark

Clark,

Here is the info from the pamplet you can obtain at the Forest Service ranger
station in Mammoth.

Ask them for the Off- Highway and Mountain
biking map...... which is free. They keep
them behind the counter so you have to ask
the staff for them.

"You might enjoy a ride on the Owens River-Hot Creek Road.
It's 17 miles one way. Leaves from Hwy. 395 north of Mammoth Lakes at
Owens River Road. The paved road follows the headwaters of the Owens River
until The road turns into dirt. Turn right at 3S44 and continue to
Hot Creek Geological Site, featuring bubbling hot springs. Route ends
back on Hwy, 395 after passing the Hot Creek Fish Hatchery, which is
open for tours, weather permitting"

Bring your bathing suits for the hot springs..... it's nice

We rode our quads from Glass Creek to Hot Creek (GPS Required) and soaked in the river for 2 hours. Round trip about 55 miles. Unless you get lost on the way.

Hi Ya'll

I'll tip a cold one for you all this weekend. Hopefully I can get some kind of internet service, but if I don't I know I'll have a couple hours and 1 kleenex box worth of reading when I get back.

One of my buddies going is a gormet chef so I know I'll eat well.

Steak, Salmon, Chicken and a white ruskie

Boy I've been looking forward to this for a while!!!

Be good everyone, have a safe weekend!!!

Clark
