Camping At June Lake
We got to spend a week at June Lake with mom's aunt and uncle from Arizona and her cousins from Southern California. We did lots of sight-seeing and visiting. Every night we enjoyed a campfire together and usually dinner too! It was very fun and relaxing!
This is the "camp trailer" mom rented from the resort. It had a lot of personality as you will find out when you read Week 6 of Trail Tales!
Our home for the week!
It was old but usable, and reasonably comfortable too!
The bedroom, small but comfortable.
A pink refrigerator. Very unusual!
The kitchen. Again, small but worked great!
The dining room. It worked for two people.
We stayed at June Lake, but there were other lakes in the area that we also visited. Mom, her friend, and I even went canoeing on one! There was a neat little town called "June Lake" and we spent some time looking around at shops there.

One morning everyone went out to breakfast at Silver Lake. It was a pretty drive there and mom said the food was really good! I didn't get to taste any as I had to wait in the car, so I'll take her word for it.
Gull Lake has a marina and this is where we rented a canoe and went for a ride around the lake. It was fun!

The scenery in the June Lake varies greatly as you can see from the pictures. Some of it is forested, some rocky mountains, and some is bare like the area around Grant Lake. All of it is beautiful in its own way! This pictures below are taken along June Lake Loop Road.
Although bears were known to frequent the campground, we never actually saw one. Although, one did leave a pile of his "marking" behind our trailer one night. Below are pictures of the only other animals we saw besides squirrels. The raccoons were most annoying . . . it was even difficult to chase them away!
Mom's cousin has some stuff called "funky flames that she put on the campfire to make the flames wierd colors like pink and green and purple. It was neat!
While we ladies went shopping, the guys went fishing. We had a big fish fry one night! And every evening we sat around a campfire until long after dark and enjoyed visiting. The campfires were built in old washing machine tubs!
Sometimes they stayed up way past my bedtime
so I just curled up and went to sleep anyway!
