June Lake

Mammoth Lakes, California

June 14-19, 2007 - Mammoth Lakes, California was our first

real sightseeing stop after leaving Lincoln, New Mexico. We

camped at Coldwater Campground at the far end of town.  The

campground sits about 1,000 feet higher than town, but it is a

lovely and quiet wooded area. We took several hikes from the

campground.

One hike went along a rushing brook, another went past several

lakes (the "Duck Lake" hike), though we didn't make it all the

way to Duck Lake).  We also rode our bikes around the Twin

Lakes and Horseshoe Lake area near the campground.  This is

an easy bike ride and we were rewarded with stunning views.

We rode our bikes into town as well.  There is a fantastic

descent to get to town, but you have to pay for that thrill with a

long climb back to the campground at the end of the day.

There is a wonderful bike path that winds through town and to

the outskirts near a golf course.

I felt like we were riding our bikes and hiking through the pages of

a high-end touring catalog.

On our way out of town we took the scenic loop past June Lake.

It was a gorgeous area with towering mountains and a cute little

town center.  We didn't stop.  Another time!!  We were on a

mission to see Yosemite National Park.
