Co-hosted by Kittredge Sports, the High Sierra Striders, the High Sierra Triathlon Club, and the Mammoth Lakes High School Cross-Country Running Team!

Project description: Despite unseasonably chilly, windy, gray-bird weather, three dozen hearty volunteers arrived at the Panorama Dome trailhead on August 28 to spend their Saturday maintaining the Dome's trails as well as the Twin Lakes day-use area and Mammoth Rock Trail. Much work was done and core temperatures raised, owing in no small part, of course, to the bagels-and-juice breakfast provided by co-host Kittredge Sports. Wilderness Catering refueled our hungry volunteers with another stellar spread. Special thanks to Tamarack Lodge for letting us set up for lunch on the wind-protected patio behind their facility!
