The Forest Chapel Revisited…

by Duane ~ August 22nd, 2011. Filed under: Photos, Plans.

Well, it took the better part of the spring and summer both for the snow to melt and for Deb to be able to get away for a few days.  So with the high sierras beckoning, we left Thursday for a four day sojourn to our favorite place.

We squeezed a lot into four days:  Dinner with our friend Stuart (twice), a meeting with a Wedding Planner (Sandra DiDomizio) from Green Fox Events who was ever so helpful, a meeting with the lovely Marcy, event coordinator and gourmet chef at the Pokonobe Resort (yes, its one of those summer camp names, and yes they DO need a web site) resort, a meeting with Jennifer Zeigler, the wedding and event coordinator at Mammoth Mountain, AND two hikes; one to the top of June mountain, the other to Crystal Lake below Crystal Crag in the Lakes basin.  Pictures?  I thought you’d never ask.  Here you go:

The first four are from June Lake.  You ride a lift up the cliff face and start your walk at 8500 ft, much better than starting from the valley floor…

From the top of the June Mountain lift:

The famous bridge which in previous pictures had snow on it:

Where's that confouded bridge?

All the snow’s gone!  It should look just like this on our wedding day:
