The bears are very smart. They go after the stringers of fish caught by the fishermen fishing from the shores.

The eastern Sierras are beautiful. The area around June Lake is reminiscent of Switzerland. There are beautiful lakes, lovely drives, gorgeous views and wonderful opportunities for outdoor activities all year round.

Beautiful scenery. Have been here many times during fall and winter. During these times there are very few people there which made it a relaxing place to visit.

Nice sierra lake with trails around it. You can rent a boat to go fish or just relax on the water and enjoy the scenery.

Excellent camping sites though only water is available. Mary is a high Sierra lake and you should take your time moving around if you are from lower elevations. Fishing can be excellent. Boats are available from the little store. Bears can be a problem if...More
