Family Secrets

We are back home from our Mammoth holiday. While packing up to go home, I realized that on the whole we are a bit odd in our must haves. We had to take our panini press, and our blender. Chicken is just better when it has been pressed, and our blender's 3 hp of blending power is handy. We needed powdered sugar, and only had regular, so we put it in and made our own.

Note the light bulbs in the photo, they are regular wonderful incandescent light bulbs. When we arrived that fixture and many others had horrible fluorescent bulbs. We did not bring any bulbs with us (they are on the list for next time) so we went to the store and got enough bulbs to make our stay nicer. Yes, before we left we changed them all back.

While the weather holds

We took several smaller hikes today. We hiked again to Lake McLeod (spelling changes for this lake from book to book, and trail marker to trail marker), we hiked up the trail beyond the Inyo Fault, and we hiked along Hot Creek. The road to Devil's Postpile is expected to be opened again on Sunday -- we hope to hike in the valley. More pictures here.

Road snacks

The boys love to stop and get jerky for the ride - we stop at this
place every year.
