Monday, July 25th
Beaver Ponds

It was partly cloudy in the morning for a change. I checked the weather forecast (it's posted near the front of the campground), and it called for 20% chance of thunderstorms. I kept that in mind as we made the approximately 50 minute drive to Mammoth Hot Springs, where we hiked to the Beaver Ponds.

After the hike, we stopped into a store for ice cream, then drove back to camp. We had new neighbors tonight; there seems to be pretty high turnover at the campground, with a lot of people staying for 1 to 3 nights (we were staying for 5). Our new neighbors were loud and ill-prepared, part of a large group spread out over several sites. They threw a bucket of lighter fluid over a bag of charcoal in their fire pit, and shouted at each other in the dark (they appeared to have very few flashlights and no lanterns). Thankfully, they pretty much quieted down around 11pm (quiet time is 10pm - 6am).
