Favorite thing: We took the June Lake Loop on our way home. It is a route up into the mountains with several little lakes and resort areas. Some of the most beautiful fall foilage I have seen. Lots of people fishing. Looking at the turn off towards the mountains you have no idea how incredible the drive is going to be.
you must visit the local hot spings of the area..
stop at any gas station and ask the attendant what his or her favorite hotspring of the area is and go there!,,,
you wont be disapointed ..
one word of caution.. most locals go clothing optional.,, so no staring. :)
Fondest memory: we actully camped at a campground near devels postpile.. this is a really neat thing to see. Its a natural formation of rock in tha shape of octagon type cylinders protruding out of the ground.
Favorite thing: Go golfing! At SnowCreek Golf Course. The gorgeous mountains all around you is the perfect backdrop for a nice day on the course! A 9-hole course with a driving range.
