Pioneer Basin

Approaching Mono Pass.


 First Lake, Pioneer Basin.

I was too lazy to bring my real camera on a backpack to Pioneer Basin back in 2011 -- so I chanced it and brought the iPhone. 

In hindsight, I should have humped the real camera over 12,000-foot Mono Pass. But I still managed to get a couple of interesting photos with the iPhone. The top was a regular photo that I processed with Snapseed; the bottom photo was taken with the Hipstamatic app. 

Just a couple of offerings on an otherwise slow day. :) If you've never hiked up to Mono Pass, it's an excellent day hike -- six miles roundtrip and 2,000 feet up from the end of Rock Creek Road (about 30 minutes south of Mammoth). Put it on your list of summer hikes.
