Fall Colors Sierras Trip Report

“On Solo” at June Lake

October 7-10, 2022 was our 8th trip to the June Lakes Loop, north of Mammoth, and we had ideal weather. No wind, daytime temps in the mid-70’s, and night temps in the low 40s, with just a few sprinkles on our hike and the last night after we were in our tents. Now that is how it’s supposed to work for an easy car-camping trip.

After the snow and cold of last year’s trip, some people had second thoughts about going this year, but the nine who went this time all had a wonderful experience.  We hope you can join us next year!
