Still at Mammoth -- headed back to Pasadena tonight and hoping the ol' groin is up for some ice skating.
As for the above, pic, that's Arrowhead Lake near Mammoth. It's a great short hike, although yesterday was freezing out and weather was trying to decide to rain or snow or both.
To get there, drive to Lake Mary, then drive to the end of the Coldwater Campground and park in the day use/overnight lot. Take the Duck Pass trail for about a mile uphill, then look for the turnoff on the left for Arrowhead. The fishing there is great in the autumn, particularly near the inlet, where dozens of brook trout gather.
I'm going to try to post more hiking info from time to time, for outdoor-minded hockey enthusiasts.
