Starting at the Beginning...

Now that we have settled in to our new life here in Mammoth, I started to think about what I wanted to explore in the area and share with all of you...

What better place to start, than at the beginning...
And what better place to find the beginning, than a museum...
My dear blogger friend Tash (of Palos Verdes Daily Photo) told me about the Mammoth Museum...a little cabin, built in the late 1920's that has been turned into a very charming museum of the area...

Just off of Old Mammoth Rd, and close to the Sierra Meadows Ranch, this little cabin is situated with a phenomenal view and just a ways from a charming creek.

The museum has numerous photos of the area from the late 1800's on, with descriptions and explanations.   The cabin was built by Emmet Hayden and his wife Margaret.  Originally, they operated it as a bed and breakfast establishment with hunting and fishing guide service.  


  1. wow. nice backdrop in this charming museum.

  2. One of the benefits of living in Mammoth Steffe!!! That backdrop is always there and always beautiful!!!

  3. The 1st photo is spectacular. Love the way you see things I didn't.

  4. Ditto back at ya' Tash!!! One of the great things about photography and art...we all have different perspectives!
