Mother’s Day 2013 at Buckley Ponds, Cardinal Village

Mother’s Day weekend is always fun around here because the weather is usually perfect and we’ve often got family visiting to celebrate the wonderful mothers that make life so great.

This year was no exception. It was a weekend packed with great visits and a Rhino adventure to Buckley Ponds, east of Bishop. We also drove up to Cardinal Village, near Lake Sabrina, for breakfast at one of our favorite spots.

It’s a beautiful part of the year because it’s warm and green in the valley but there’s still a lot of snow in the high country. I hope you enjoy these like we enjoyed taking them. I also hope that you all enjoyed time with the mothers in your life like we did here.

That’s all for today. If you’re on Facebook, check out our new Facebook page here. We’re posting new photos there several times per week, including a lot of historical images from the Mammoth Mountain archive.

Thanks again everybody.

April Adventure to the Big Horn Sheep of Silver Canyon

Here are shots from a trip we took a few weeks back into Silver Canyon.

We also went to The Buttermilk, Chidago Canyon, and Adobe Valley that weekend. It was four days packed full of adventure, and this was one of the best trips we’ve had all year.

We’ve had some good luck finding the big horn sheep the last few times. We had a run of trips up there without seeing them, now we’ve seen them three of the last four times.

The moment you see them, camouflaged on the side of the canyon, is always exciting.They’re usually hidden away well enough that most people wouldn’t even notice them. Sometimes they’re standing in the road and they’re impossible to miss.

Have a look and thanks for coming back. We’ll post some from our Buttermilk trip that week up soon. Thanks again and keep skiing!

The best pictures ever! Reminders of why I love the Owens Valley and always will. Thank you, Mr. McCoy, for putting these incredible images online for those of us who, No. 1: Grew up in the Owens Valley, and who, No. 2: Still wish we lived there!
Thanks again,
