We drove the June Lake Loop on our way back out to Highway 395. We stopped at the Silver Lake Cafe, in the back of the lodge store across the street from Silver Lake. It has a homey, family feel – and GIANT mugs of coffee.
The northern end of the loop’s lake is a reservoir, and the landscape significantly changes at this end of the loop. We turn on to 395 north, and head back over Tioga Pass and home.
