The June Lake Loop is a clearly marked paved road that takes off from Highway 395 and runs through the resort town of June Lake, past the June Mountain ski area and then swings north past some scenic lakes and returns to the highway. There also is a northern entrance just south of the Mono Lake area.It is one of my favorite Eastern Sierra drives.
The June Lake Loop often offers some of the best Sierra fall color.There are plenty of places to park and hike and climb to get the shot you want. I spotted what looked like a promising composition requiring a climb up the lower side of the mountain. Fortunately, the shot improved the more I climbed and this was the result.
