The June Lake loop

If you detour off Highway 395 and take the June Lake loop, you are in for a delightful surprise.  June Lake is the small town there.  It's so small that there is only one market and NO bank.  They have a tiny library and a wonderful thrift store, which I discovered on Saturday.  I bought pullovers and jackets for $2.00 and $3.00 each and some head gear for $1.00 each.

There are four lakes along the June Lake loop:  June Lake, Gull Lake, Silver Lake, and Grant Lake.  All of these lakes are stocked with fish in May, at the beginning of the fishing season and people come up here all summer to fish.  Hubby and I don't fish, but we love to take photographs in this area and spend a week here in June or August.

So, while hubby was taking his afternoon nap yesterday, I headed out with the XTerra to take some photos of Silver Lake.  Silver Lake doesn't allow big boats on it and many fishermen rent a boat for the day at the boat rental there.  I found some gentlemen fishing from rubber boats yesterday afternoon.  They were out there just enjoying the sun, the weather, and getting some fish....what a great way to spend the day!  Anyway, here are some photos of June Lake, Silver Lake, and Grant Lake.

Hey - a town with a small market AND a small library sounds great to me! :)

That lake looks beautiful! A quiet place to get away!
