The View Is Terrific

I'm in beautiful Mammoth Lakes, California

This incredible sky was taken at Convict Lake nearby. Believe it or not we are outside waiting for our table for dinner. And the sunrise was just as stunning....althought the blue and pink had been replaced by red and orange. Convict Lake has an excellent restaurant, boat rentals, fishing docks and a camp ground. Set far from the main highway, it's a place time forgot. It got it's name after a famous gun battle between escaped Convicts and the Law....but now, just pure recreation. I had the Beef Wellington....delicious.

Thanks for explaining how the Lake got its name. As I was reading your post I was thinking how a beautiful place got a name such as that.

Karen, you answered my question--when things are named something interesting with a perspective that doesn't match the name, it always fascinates me as to why it's named that! I'm SO glad you are having the time of your life!

We've got Dock Crawl coming here at Fishhawk Lake in about an hour. It's a progressive party, going from one home to the next, cabin or otherwise and will end with desserts and a live band at the clubhouse at 6pm--woohoo!
