Thanksgiving is always a great time of the season! It provides us all with the opportunity to be thankful for what we have, to share the precious gifts of life and to spend time with family and friends. This Thanksgiving was no exception as my daughters joined Diane and I in Mammoth for the holiday weekend and the Inaugural Mammoth Lakes Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot. It was a hoot! A small group of people of all ages and abilities braved the warm sun and single digit temperatures to “trot” along a 1.6 mile course that prepared us to the thanksgiving feast that awaited us later on that afternoon. Mammoth Lakes Recreation is the proud sponsor of this community building event that supported the Mammoth Track Club as they prepare their athletes for the 2016 US Olympic Trails in February. We look forward to many great turkey trots to come as we grow this Thanksgiving Day event.
