I couldn’t have asked for a better group of complete strangers to spend my weekend with ice diving the cold lakes near Mammoth. Well, technically ice diving Mammoth Lake and just normal cold water diving Silver and June Lake. And complete strangers is a bit of a stretch too. The diving community in Southern California feels surprisingly small, so I have several friends who know parts of the group but having never met any of them, I had no real expectations so I was pleasantly surprised.

I was also pleasantly surprised to find crayfish in these lakes! I’d never of guessed, but I am super happy as they made for some of the better images.

Also a few random images from pit stops along the way home.
