Embracing the Enchanting Summertime in Mammoth Lakes
I know I keep saying this, but summer really is my favorite time of year in Mammoth Lakes and the Eastern Sierra. This summer feels more special. I think that is because it feels like we fought for it. This past winter, the biggest on record, felt like it would never end… and it still hasn’t, at least on Mammoth Mountain. But there is always a bright side, and right now, the bright side is all the green lushness, all the wildflowers, the lakes that are overflowing with fish and water, and our blue skies. For me, this is as close to heaven as you can get on Earth.

Below are some photos. Yesterday we went to Convict Lake Resort for dinner and arrived early, so we went and walked some of the lake. Then Lake Mary, flowers, and past Bluesapaloozas. Hoping to entice you to come and share our slice of heaven. Have a wonderful weekend.
