Burn Area / Mammoth Lakes & Eastern Yosemite Trip (July 20-24, 2009)
This fire was on the road to Rock Creek Lake near Tom's Place on U.S. Highway 395. Rock Creek Lake is one of Jerry's favorite fishing places. Unfortunately, we (Jerry) ruined a tire/wheel rim on this road by hitting a pot-hole! I believe it was the only pot-hole on this road... We spent several hours hobbling back down to Bishop to, hopefully find an Acura dealer, instead of seeing this beautiful lake. We learned there are NO Acura dealers anywhere near the Mammoth/Bishop area. That meant we traveled all the way back home on a spare tire. All went well, thankfully.
But...I did get a few photos of a burn area just moments before the mishap! There's always the next time!!!
