Description - Exploring Mammoth Lakes by Mark A. Schlenz
Mammoth Lakes offers as much opportunity for four seasons of high mountain exploration and adventure as any place you can find in the Eastern Sierra. Perhaps no other place makes that special mountain high feeling you get here so available to everyone - every season of the year. Mammoth Mountain Ski Area and the resort town of Mammoth Lakes open this otherwise snowbound region of the Sierra Nevada to unlimited winter sport opportunities. Idyllic mountain summer weather and the area's innumerable lakes and streams create an unparalleled paradise for hikers, campers, and fishermen. Spring wildflowers and brilliant fall color bring dramatic changes to the landscape, rewarding visitors with special beauties. Magnificent landscape photography by long-time area resident Dennis Flaherty will inspire you with stunning samples of the region's scenic grandeur. Accompanying captions and essays interpret the region's natural and human history, describe its recreational resources, and orient you to all kinds of activities and outdoor adventure.
