Duck Pass Hike

While in Mammoth Lakes I hiked with friends up towards Duck Pass.
The hike begins above Lake Mary and follows along a pleasant stream.
 It goes past Arrow Lake and then Skelton Lake.
 At Barney Lake we stopped for lunch.  We looked at the pass.  No one was enthusiastic about going over the pass to Duck Lake.
 I propped my camera on a rock for a group photo.  It was an odd angle and I tripped running to get into the shot.  I made it on the second try.  I'm the one on the left.
 Back at the trailhead we explored what remained of the Mammoth Consolidated Mine.
This hike starts here, at the trailhead parking at the far end of the Lake Mary Campground.

You can find more world views at My World Tuesday, hosted for us by Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and Sylvia.

Never a dull moment when we "go hiking with you!" So many lakes! BTW, how did you tilt your photos?

The colour of the water in the lakes is very clear and beautiful. Oh, how I would have loved to poke around the ruins of the mine! What fun!

A fun name - "Duck" Pass. A truly lovely walk with many interesting things to see. The second photo is my favourite.

A lovely hike indeed, thank you for sharing it with us.
To walk a trail alongside a chattering creek would be bliss for me as well as the lakes. Flowing water is so cheerful on a hike.

Beautiful pictures -- however, that might be going a little too far to get that group shot! Be careful out there!

Hi Martha, Enjoyed hiking with you - the lake colors are gorgeous. Looks like it wasn't too cold there. We just got back from NM and had snow on the peaks overnight.
