Every year I get the privilege of travelling to one of my favorites places in California - Mammoth Lakes. Each summer I go in late July/early August for a few weeks of training at the Altitude Project a Christian distance running camp (http://www.altitudeproject.com/). Then in the middle of September, our team goes up for one week.
Mammoth Lakes is beautiful and there is plenty to take pictures of as well as surrounding Eastern Sierra areas including Owen's Valley, and Mono Lake.
Here are a few pictures from my travels there this year.
