OWAC FALL CONF. DAY 1 -- MAMMOTH CA

OUTDOOR WRITERS ENJOY DAY 1 OF FALL CONFERENCE IN MAMMOTH MOUNTAIN, CA

We did the Board meeting and caught up with friends and fellow photographers and writers in the am, followed by a great lunch and plenty of Mammoth Mountain hospitality.

Gomez's Mexican Restaurant provided one outstanding buffet lunch, with goodies like Portabello Mushroom burritos and delectable fajitas.

Gomez's serves up a selection of items, including:

Sugarcane Shrimp; Chimale; Fajitas; Ceviche, and the usual combinations  you can't live without.

The OWAC Board of directors were introduced and we enjoyed a relaxing lunch before heading back to the Westin hotel for workshops and craft improvement sessions.



Famed photographer, Jack Dykinga was one of the highlights of the workshops, with his breath-taking images of our natural landscapes.  Jack was down to earth, real and personable while showcasing us  a few highlights of his 40 years of photography experience.  He is truly a pro with an eye for light.



The evening found us riding the gondolas up to the ski resort Parallax Restaurant for an incredible dinner with an unsurpassed view of Mammoth Mountain and the Sierra Nevada Mountains.  The gondola ride was a thrill in itself.






Be sure to put a visit to Mammoth Lakes on your summer AND winter plans.  This place is amazing ---- oh, did I mention they also have an OHV area, motorcross races and plenty of trails to explore?
