After leaving Carson City we headed south for home. We drove the June Lake Loop looking for some friends who camp there every year during this week of July but could not locate their RV.
Hey Fairchilds, where were you guys?
Next stop was the Crystal Crags Lodge near Mammoth Lakes to meet other friends. When we arrived they surprised us with a pontoon boat picnic. It was a lovely afternoon on Lake Mary, eating, drinking, talking and fishing. All that changed at the first flash of lightning and booming crash of thunder. Lake Mary was quickly cleared of watercraft much to the disappointment of Gena. She had rented a paddle board with the devious plan of photographing me creating a memorable splash. I have no photos of our time at the lake because I didn't take my camera.
The first time I camped at this location was around 30 years ago with some rowdy friends who enjoyed soaking and other recreational diversions.
If those rocks could talk. This time it was just Jan and I, and the rowdiest event during our stay was a nearby cow calling for its calf just after sunset.
JeepsterGal. If you go to Colorado, this website provides directions to the film's many locations. It would have made things much easier for us in 2004.
