Mammoth Lakes

Weekend Getaway

Hello! Mammoth (Photo by RSheridan)

Decided to get a away and check out the Mammoth Festival of Food and Wine going on in Mammoth Lakes, California. The event festivities on Saturday were held in Sam’s Wood Site. A full day of music and wine tasting. What more could you ask for! Despite the rain had a great time and much better than roasting in the full sun anyway. The food ($) provided by the local restuarants was outstanding; gourmet eating in the woods!

The headliner Saturday evening was Kenny Loggins. I do not think anyone sat in their camp chairs when Kenny was on stage. Kenny had people moving, shaking and singing to Footloose, The Danger Zone, etc. At least the rain stopped, so Kenny and his band could play. Here come the 80s, Baby!

Highest Gas Price – Bridgeport, California – $5.19 a gallon – YIKES!!!

Horseshoe Lake

I was a little shocked as to how much Horseshoe Lake has changed since the last visit in 2009. The lake has receded and the number of dead and dying trees has grown. The dead trees were first noticed in 1990  and about 170 acres of trees have died on all sides of the Mammoth Mountain volcano. You will see signs on the way to Horseshoe Lake about the high concentrations of carbon dioxide gas in the area. What a Geological Mystery!
