Convict Lake in Mammoth, CA is absolutely stunning. The reflection of the snowy Sierra Mountains in the 400′ deep water had me in awe. Mammoth was hit with 100′ of snow this year, so as you could imagine there was still a ton of it on the ground as we went up in elevation. Because we didn’t have snow shoes, we opted out of the 2.5 mile loop hike, and instead sat by the lake & enjoyed the view with our hot cups of coffee. You can bet your butt the next time we go, we’ll take on the challenge!
