Being a native Californian, I'm embarrassed to say that this was my maiden voyage to June Lake. A pristine lake high in the Sierra Nevada mountains, near Mammoth ski area. There are plenty of rentals available and it was almost deserted this winter because the new owners of Mammoth ski area closed the lifts at June Lake. Quiet. Stunning vistas. Great restaurant nearby with a spa and all the creature comforts. It only took about 30 minutes to get to the lifts. This is a place I hesitate to recommend because I'll hate sharing it with all the people that will now visit!!
