Day Trip to the Long Valley Hot Springs

This was a long day trip to the hot springs near Mammoth, by way of Echo Summit (US50) and Monitor Pass (CA89) (bypassing South Lake Tahoe). This was principally a trip to check up on conditions at the hot springs. Rather than a more relaxed soaking and/or hiking trip.
