Sierra Secret Is Out

September 20, 1998

Regarding Lucretia Bingham's story on the Mono Hot Springs Resort ("Sierra Secret," Aug. 9): While the article was detailed and accurate, she failed to mention that the resort is adjacent to a well-kept forestry service campground. The resort and campground are open June through September only.

The sinking feeling I experienced upon seeing the article is that she revealed this well-kept "Sierra secret" to 1.4 million Times Travel section readers. In the 18 years that I have known about Mono Hot Springs, I shared it with only six of my most appreciative friends.

I can only hope that the treacherous road into Mono Hot Springs and the primitive, albeit charming, rustic style of the facilities will keep the horde of pleasure seekers down on the lower slopes of the Sierra.
