Photo of the Day: Lake George

I'm still enjoying my time here at Mammoth Lakes in the Eastern Sierra, getting out in the afternoons to hike and bike.  This place is not only home to a ski resort where I taught snowboarding for five seasons, but it is also a great summer destination with numerous high-country lakes which are popular for camping and fishing.

This one is Lake George, which is quite the tranquil spot on a summer evening, with Crystal Crag peaking up in the background.  A hike from here up to Crystal Lake and back is a great way to wind down after a day spent slaving away at the keyboard. :-)


  1. This is such a dramatic scene - how lovely for it to be right in your 'back yard'. I can't help thinking that on a tranquil summer evening hike here in Scotland, amongst our stunning scenery, you would be bitten to peices by the not so tranquil summer midge. Do you get bothered by biting creatures in the Eastern Sierra, Kenneth?

  2. Yikes! We do get the occasional mosquito, but I don't think I've seen a single one this summer. The not so tranquil summer midge doesn't sound nice at all! I'm glad we don't have any of them. ;-)
