Extended our visit to New Shady

Today we paid for three more nights at New Shady Rest Forest Service Campground in Mammoth Lakes, CA. This should max out the fourteen-day limit for us at this campground. This is a wonderful location, with easy walks to town restaurants, etc. This morning we walked to Stellar Brew and Natural Cafe for breakfast. Lots of locals, and great food.
