We had a chance to visit Mammoth and Mono Lakes over the thanksgiving weekend with my brother and my cousin's family. Of course, the ski area was crowded. Being beginner skiers, we decided to rent some ski equipments and went skiing on the snow slopes by the roadside. It was fun plus we had the whole area to ourselves. Mono lake is a salt water lake. Crystal clear and calm water provided excellent reflections for picture taking.
A beautiful and very friendly horse by the roadside on ourway to Mammoth/Mono Lakes area.
