Mammoth Lakes Basin

If you drive Lake Mary Road up to the Mammoth Lakes all to its end, you will suddenly reach another lake, but...

...this lake is almost dried up...

...and the trees are dead all around the lake! This is caused by a high concentration of CO2 in the soil. Therefor, you should not dig in the soil, and also refrain from taking a sunbath up here.


June Lake Loop

The June Lake Loop, situated between Mammoth City and Lee Vining, is another spectacular and scenic drive!

Vacancy Sign

We decided to stay in Lee Vining, and fortunately we saw a vacancy sign outside our motel. You better be early, though, because there are not too many rooms in Lee Vining, and they fill quickly as the village is the starting point for many tourists going to Yosemite National Park!


Mono Lake

Bizarre rock formations are sitting in the water.


Sunset at Mono Lake

Sun and shadow are fighting over the rocks of Mono Lake at sunset, giving another spectacular sight for the visitor.
