My college-aged son is staying in Mammoth this summer to run in the mountains (and to hopefully find a job). We will be visiting him in August -- flying into Reno, driving to Mammoth, and driving to L.A. We have 5 nights to spend in the Mammoth area and would like to use it as a home base. We've been to Yosemite and Sequoia but could always return. Suggestions on any aspect of this trip are much appreciated -- Sites to see b/w reno and mammoth; Overnites b/w mammoth and l.a.; Places to see, eat, or stay at; Son's summer job, etc. Thanks!
