If it wasn't for the snow in the Eastern Sierra, Los Angeles would never have grown as it has. See the film Chinatown for the story of how LA stole the water.

Good work. I'm homesick for those mountains. Photo #2 makes me want to float a salmon egg along the undercut bank.

Thanks for your replies. The Eastern Sierra is one of my favorite places to be and photograph.

The road into the Mammoth Lakes basin was just cleared about two weeks ago and there is still a good amount of ice and snow around the lakes The road around the other side of Mammoth Mountain into Devils Postpile/Reds Meadow may not be cleared by the 4th.

I'm heading back up to the Mammoth Lakes basin Tuesday. My grandkids have been asking me to take them fishing and it will be their first time up there. We wanted to stay at Reds Meadow but I didn't want to take a chance of not being able to get there. I'm really looking forward to watching their little faces for their first time in the high country.

Oh, and floating the salmon egg along the undercut? That's where I caught my nicest fish for the whole trip.
