Crystal Lake hike

I do wish the Swall Institute had curtains, but it was nice to wake up to the sound of birds outside and a magnificent view of the eastern Sierra mountains outside the many windows.

After breakfast, it was already 80 degrees and climbing as we made the drive up toward Mammoth Lakes. The Swall Institute is between 6500 and 7000 feet elevation, and thankfully it was a bit cooler at the higher elevation of Mammoth Lakes. We drove up to Lake George and started our hike to Crystal Lake.

After the hike, we returned to Mammoth Lakes where we had dinner at busy Roberto's Mexican restaurant, did some grocery shopping for the several days of camping ahead, then returned to the Swall Institute.
