Our View: The Temple of Folly

July 6, 2012

We were outdoors Tuesday morning and found ourselves at the Hayden Cabin off Sherwin Creek Road.

It’s a lovely spot early in the morning, with the brook babbling, the songbirds singing and trees sighing in a light breeze.

It was the day after the Town of Mammoth Lakes declared its intent to enter into bankruptcy to take care of the $43 million in legal debt it incurred during the expansion of the airport.

We wandered up to the flat where E Clampus Vitus had built a memorial to the first thriving business in old Mammoth City—a bar-grocery-hardware store called “The Temple of Folly.”
