Off The Trail- Meet the Devils Postpile’s forgotten little sister

April 3, 2013

 

Lower Rock Creek trail, one of the best early season hikes in the area, holds many secrets—including the Devils Postpile’s forgotten little sister.

Rock Creek is best known as the beautiful creek that meanders through the meadows above Rock Creek Lake, under the black and white striped turrets and ramparts of Bear Creek Spire, then down along the road from Mosquito Flats to Tom’s Place.

The culture of a community

April 3, 2013

 

A community gains a character and a personality of its own, because of the culture of its people.

The importance of culture lies in the fact that it is a link between people and their value systems. Culture is that one single bond that ties the people of a region or community together.

We are in the tourism and recreation business

I would like to respond to your editorial “Nice is Hard” in the Mammoth Times March 22 issue.

Your editorial perfectly illustrates a problem some people have in our community. That is the notion that visitors to our resort who are frustrated, upset, or angry about the problems they face trying to have a fun vacation in Mammoth have somehow offended us and therefore forfeit their expectation of good service or even politeness from us.

That idea is simply not true, worse; it is destructive to our reputation and future business.

There is a timeworn basketball strategy that is as simple to understand as it is hard to execute:

Play to your strengths, cover your weaknesses.

We’ve been thinking about that during the past few weeks, and not just because of the NCAA Basketball Tournament. Rather, we’ve been thinking about it in terms of Mammoth, and Town Manager Marianna Marysheva-Martinez’s push for economic development.

Fido & Me - Spring Sniffs

April 3, 2013

 

“My sniffer is working again!” Fido yelled.

“Pray tell, my big fine fellow,” said I.

“It’s like someone just flipped the ‘on’ switch! Don’t you sense all these fine whiffs?”

“Human aren’t that tuned in to sniffs, like dogs.”

“That’s too bad. Let’s go over here! No! Over here! No! Over there!”
