MAMMOTH LAKES CALIFORNIA 2014

It was a great week in Mammoth this year. We were there July 5th - 12th. We have been going there for about 18 years now and have been at a cabin at Woods Lodge on Lake George for probably 12 of those years!  I didn't take a lot of pictures this year but I thought I would share some of my favorites. 

We left extra early this year to avoid traffic on the 2 lane highway part of U.S. Route 395 so we stopped at the Ranch House Cafe for breakfast. Usually we don't arrive there until lunch time. 



We pass Mt. Whitney on the way up which is the highest mountain in the contiguous United States. We always stop for bread at Erick Schat's Bakery in Bishop, CA. When we are in Mammoth we stop in at Paul Schat's Bakery during the week which is Erick's son! 



Crystal Crag Mountain
View from our porch! 
My favorites.....


Reflections.....

Chipmunks......


We don't feed them until we leave, 
then we give them a little treat!


A few of our meals in the cabin. We also went out for pizza and
a wonderful dinner at The Chart House in town.
On Wednesday Adam joined us. He flew in from Los Angeles. Smallest airport I have ever been to and I couldn't believe the baggage claim area, just had to laugh! 
His plane landed and we got to watch......

Had a few evening fires while playing scrabble....
We had a visit from these deer on Thursday. Adam missed them. He had ear plugs in his ears and didn't hear me. So you get to see them in pictures just like Adam did! 
Mark said there was a total of five but I only saw four.....

We had a lot of clouds this year and 
several rainy afternoons. 

This is definitely my favorites shot! 
Just love these retro chairs! 
Adam and Mark did several very long hikes 
while I enjoyed reading....
I also grew very tall while I was there......

I probably forget something about this week....
When I remember I will tell you!

Hi Debby! Chipmunks are so cute, aren't they? Unfortunately one of our cats found a home and was bringing one everyday, for several days.

Anyway, I love the deer pictures. Can you tell I love animals :)

I would love to do a puzzle using the view from your porch.

I had to laugh at the airport. It says `Mammoth` Yosemite Airport...doesn't look mammoth to me..LOL

Thank you for sharing with us

My husband always tells stories of skiing at Mammoth when he had friends who lived in L.A. My dream trip is to spend some major time out west and see all the cool sights out there!

I think I would have had to feed those chipmunks all week, Debby! Great photos, especially of your new tall self! What a beautiful place and I'm so glad Adam was able to fly in for a couple of days. I know that was special. I know my husband will want to stop at that breakfast place, he believes in you now because of your Schat's recommendation, you know! Great memories. Email me if you feel like it, I'd love to hear from you. Ann

Debby; you take great pictures!! What a beautiful place to spend a week! I loved the pictures of the chipmunks and the deer; what a treat to have gotten to see so many deer at one time! How long was the flight from LA to Yosemite?

I love that little squirrel looking in the window - so cute.

And the mountains in white.

And those eggs - boy do I think they look so good -- I am hungry!

I love reading about your Mammoth trips every year. I feel like I've been there.
I can't believe I've been reading your blog for this long! 5 years I think. I've loved it.

The food looks way yummy.

Such a beautiful place. I love the familiar...like the special restaurants and bakeries, annual stops a long the way.
