I forgot to post photos of how much snow had melted around the Hayden Cabin since I skied out there last on 4/9/17.

Now that all the snow had melted off the road in, I drove down there and took these of the cabin and Mammoth Creek (nearly at its banks - flooding imminent) a week ago on Saturday, 5/6/17 when I went to pick up trash. We have the Town Public Works Dept., MLFD and the CA Conservation Camp crew in Bishop on notice to help us when sandbagging and shoring up of the banks is needed.

Today our Board Prez, Robert Joki and his lovely wife Sue (also owners of the Gallery at Twin Lakes - which they won't be able to even get to for a while since there is still 4-6' of snow around their cabin) began organizing things at the Hayden Cabin to prepare for the Hantavirus bleaching and deep clean to begin the end of this week.

They were just so happy to be back "home" after returning from where they reside in Portland in the winter, that they didn't even care it was so dang cold and windy out today. They had three heaters going inside the cabin and it was still freezing, hence how bundled up Sue was...LOL! :D

Mammoth Creek is running high, but has come down a little due to the cold temps since last weekend. Good to keep the run-off slow as we know flooding of the lawn will be imminent.

5/19/17 The cleaning continues! Much warmer today. Several folks who were in the area stopped in to see what we were up to. Most had never been inside the museum and knew nothing about it. They all said they would return later this summer!

Wendi from the Mammoth Times came down to check out our progress and take some photos. She's going to do a story on the museum's reopening for next week's issue. Thanks Wendi! :)

And yes, the ladies were wearing Sorels even though there is no snow on the ground and it was 62 outside. :roll:

5/22/17 The cleaning of the Hayden Cabin continues as we get ready to reopen the Mammoth Museum this Saturday, 5/27. We may not have all the exhibits up in time for opening day (hey, we are but a few volunteers!), but we will open our doors with smiles on our faces to welcome visitors and friends!

Super busy at the cabin the last couple of days, unpacking and putting up exhibits and organizing the office upstairs. Our new property maintenance staff member is doing a wonderful job revitalizing some old tables we use for special events. Lots of folks have stopped in to see what we've been up to so we let them wander in the museum letting them know our official opening date is tomorrow! We even got a surprise visit from LVTOSKI and his son this afternoon while they were searching for a good spot to fish along Mammoth Creek.

Been a bit busy and haven't had time to update.

Ready for opening day at the Hayden Cabin 5/27/17. Quite a few folks at the museum when I walked down around 12:30. By the end of the holiday weekend our Docents said the museum enjoyed hosting over 350 visitors...our best ever!

5/31/17 A group of students from a Waldorf school in Sebastopol toured the Casa Diablo site, had lunch at the museum then took a tour there. It was a chilly, windy, rainy day.

Our President, Robert Joki, entertained the kids with his old miner routine then struck a pose for me.

Mammoth Creek has reached the sandbags!

6/24/17 Music 'n Moonshine at the Hayden Cabin tonight, 6 p.m.

MAMMOTH CREEK FLOOD WARNING! For those of you coming to our event this evening...if you park on the north side of Mammoth Creek to walk across the footbridge to get to the Hayden Cabin, be advised that the trail to the immediate left along the creek is flooded. Continue to walk straight off the footbridge to the gravel road, then turn left toward the cabin and parking area. Bring a headlamp or flashlight so you can safely see your way back after dark.

Now THAT was big fun! Kevin Marcy of Marcy Music is so talented and funny...simply a great entertainer! He is Sam Nicolosi's (Slamski) nephew, so Sam, his wife Linda and many of the MMSA Hosts were there in force having a raucous good time! After a wild wind storm blew through while setting up in the afternoon and a little bit of rain (it snowed on the mtn!), the evening was cool and calm so our event went off without a hitch!

The Mammoth Museum at the Hayden Cabin presents the critically acclaimed production “ROMANCING THE WEST®” this Friday, June 30th at 6:00 p.m. This unique time-traveling multi-media event is part historic documentary and part live concert. You’ll experience 240 years of the American West in two riveting hours with episodes featuring a tribute to National Parks, “Women Who Romanced the West” and “Voices of the Past.” Starring singer/songwriter Christina Lynn Martin, Cowboy Poet Butch Martin, and Martin Gerschwitz (of Iron Butterfly and The Animals), this showcase brings fresh creative voices to the Hayden Cabin.

Join us in the "Temple of Folly" tent on the museum grounds (5489 Sherwin Creek Road) and explore the trials, tribulations and triumphs that formed the diverse cultures of the American West.

There will be a no-host cash bar available serving adult beverages, sodas and water. Proceeds go to the non-profit Southern Mono Historical Society who operate the Mammoth Museum at the Hayden Cabin. Some seats will be available under the tent on a first-come, first-served basis, otherwise bring your own and bring your own picnic. Food service will not be available at this event. Dogs on leashes welcome!

Parking is limited at the museum, so guests are encouraged to use public transport and walk-in from Mammoth Creek Park. For more information visit http://www.mammothmuseum.org, call 760 934-6918 or email info@mammothmuseum.org

Our 2nd Annual Jazz by the Creek last night was a huge success. With the addition of one more big name (ex-Jazz Jubilee) popular band, we had a larger crowd than last year. We generated more members by packaging four jazz tickets with a new Family membership ($50 - general admission was $25). It was hot and humid, but no rain and once the sun went down things cooled off nicely. The music was just fantastic featuring Tom Rigney and Flambeau, the Yve Evans Trio and local keyboardist Joe Gray, Jr. and his ensemble. Our illustrious President of the historical society, Robert Joki sat in with Joe and played his violin and during their second set, local Mike "Hurricane" Hoover sat in playing his harmonica. We had two great food vendors, a coffee vendor, a dessert vendor and a cash bar. Big jazzy fun was had by all! Save the date for next year...7/8/18 as Tom wants to return again!!
