Back from Mammoth

A few hours ago Erik dropped me off at the family compound after five deliciously-relaxing days spent at a lakeside cabin in Mammoth Lakes, CA. We explored some of the local lakes, went on a brief hike to see the Devil's Postpile National Monument, avoided driving over the local wildlife, spent a day reading and napping, ate a lot of rich food and took the scenic gondola up to the top of Mammoth Mountain.

Firing up the iBook back at home, I thought I would feel overwhelmed by the wealth of email, news and blog posts to catch up on. Interestingly, besides the revelation of Britney's new baby's name and some business about a detainee bill, there was nothing much to read about. It's as if the world stopped for those days while Erik and I convalesced in the mountains. Nice.

Photos to come available to browse here. And maybe an additional anecdote or two. Right now I'm going to finish reading a book.
