The Lakes Basin (Upper and Lower) is the main source of domestic water supply for the municipality of Mammoth Lakes. The outlet for the Upper Basin was moved in an effort to control the release of water. There is also a dam at the outlet at Lower Twin.

Interestingly, the moving water keeps the section at Middle Twin ice free during the winter, which, in turn, creates a perfect place for Bald eagles to fish. Can't tell ya how many of them graced my ski tours' paths over the years. Your typical forest visitor (primarily L.A.Shuns) minds are blown by watching their National Bird pull trout out of the water while they ski by.

That place was frikken MAGIC, I tell ya!

P.S. As not to discount the mind blowingness of watching Bald eagles feeding their babies, I will admit, right here and now, that said display usually reduced this Lady Ranger to tears, as well.

eKat, great info and what a place to live. You seem to have picking out the right places figured out.

Anita, wow what a great shot above. How's the recovery, will you be able to at least hike around a little this summer? Hoping the best.

eKat: not bad for a webcam at all. want to adopt me? ;)

Justin: I don't know if I will be able to hike at all. I can get around on crutches, but not many trails are crutchable out here... booooo. I will probably drag my cripple ass to a crag and watch, or just get out in the Gunks and be a touron. better than being stuck in the city.

I *should* be ok for ice season though.. stoke

Bummer Anita, good you have ice to look forward to.


Drove up yesterday afternoon for dinner in El Cap Meadow. Better than anything on tv and greater than any church ever built.

just before my first simulclimbgasm following that woman with 1000' of gear on her harness, all seven pieces. wish I had that image to share with you all from my mind-bank. so sexy.

EDIT: simulclimbing, like non-marital sex, should improve over time, correct?
