We camped at the June Lake campground - practically in town
We had some rain/snow overnight

We tried fishing the other side of the lake but no luck
View of Horsetail falls (Rush Creek) from the June Lake Loop
It was going pretty good - they're probably draining the reservoirs above it

A tiny stand of aspens on the far side of Silver Lake
