Sierra Nevada Trip

Drive from Mammoth Lakes, CA to Topaz Lake, NV

   First stop - Mammoth Lakes   

Flying high over the Mammoth Lakes area. In these photos and videos you can see Twin Lakes, Lake Mary, Lake George,

Lake Mamie, Horseshoe Lake, and even McLeod Lake. These were all shot from the Twin Lakes Vista Point, right by Lake Mamie.


Note to those familiar with the area, Horseshoe Lake has been almost empty for years. Now it is completely full.

   Second stop - Obsidian Dome   

Obsidian Dome, north of Mammoth Lakes.

Because of the impending hurricane, we elected to see some sites to the north of where we were staying

to try to stay ahead of the storms. We did get a little rain in a few places.
