Mammoth Lakes, CA - Dog Boulder, TJ Lakes and Clark Canyon

Back towards the end of June I got to go up to Mammoth Lakes to do some camping and climbing. Mammoth is hands down one of my most favorite areas to go visit in California... not just exclusively because of Mammoth, but the areas close to Mammoth as well (June Lake, Clark Canyon, Owens River Gorge, Bishop, Lone Pine... etc.) are all so close to it.

So when Marc invited me to join a group going up there in June, I didn't hesitate to jump on board.We stayed at a sweet campsite area in Mammoth Lakes called Shady Rest Campground which I had never been to before.
