    The Devil’s Backbone Run marks its 10th consecutive year this September with a slightly scaled down version, hence the name, Baby Backbone. It’s two nights/three days in Mammoth Lakes for a weekend of fun in the High Sierras.

    Don’t let the shortened schedule fool you. This will be three days packed with spectacular scenery, great drives, food, (maybe a hike) and plenty of fun.
    This year we have added Bodie State Historic Park to the itinerary.

    Also on the itinerary is an evening excursion to Mono Lake’s South Tufa Grove. Be sure to bring your camera!

    Note: One RSVP per MINI is all that is required.

    Craig,
    Staying over until Monday is an option. Or some people may want to drive up on Thursday.

    Seeing if anyone is interested in a usual 3 day event, eastern Sierra leaving Thursday?  We may have a mystery guest appear. Interest would be finding a destination for Thursday night and then meet main group on Friday in Mammoth.

    Possible Thursday destinations:

    Lake Tahoe, Oakhurst, Bishop, ?

    Mystery guest will be excited for 3 days

    I just booked at the Alpenhof.  I was surprised that there was something available.  Rich and I will be there at Denny’s on September 6th.

    We’ll see you at the meet up at the Indian Wells Brewery, not Denny’s.

    Just a head’s up on Friday afternoon and evening events. According to reliable sources there will be a Wolf’s Lair (der Wolfschanze) both Friday and Saturday afternoon and early evenings at the Alpenhof for those less inclined to visit the Tufas and Bodie Mike’s and prefer the environs of Mammoth Village

    George,

    Booked at Alpenhof; I see the start meet up is in Sylmar, that’s about an hour and a half from Fontana driving thru Pasadena without factoring the morning rush hour traffic. I am looking at possibly intercepting the group on the other side of the hill. Have you given thought to an intercept point? Can you share the planned route?

    Just join the club and signed up for this run. Got the last cottage at the Alpenhof. We are in Orange County. Looking forward to it.
