Photographer's Note

Mammoth Lakes is named after the Mammoth Mine striking gold in 1877 at Red Mountain east of this view of Lake Mary.
The glacier carved Mammoth Lakes Basin has five lakes besides this one - Lake Mary; Lake Mamie, Lake George, Horseshoe Lake, and Twin Lakes. All in elevation ranging from 8,540 to 9,008 feet above sea level.
All lakes are within Federal Forest protected lands and therefore open to the Public. And they are wondeful places to saunter around, and take trails even deeper into the Sierra Nevadas.
