    A waterfall rushes over 1,000 feet to a lake below. Eagles fly from the steep granite cliffs towering to 10,,000 feet.
    The June Lake Loop is the gem of the Eastern Sierras. Silver Lake is the third of four small lakes and the starting point of the hike. Pack trains service the many camps and trails on a regular basis along our trail. It is a strenuous hike, that is carved out of the face of the cliffs (not for the light of heart). There is no way I would take a horse along those trails, like my wife did once.
    When you reach Gem Lake you are at the gate way to thousands of lakes and trails branching in all directions. This hike is a religious nature experience.
    The hike starts at the Silver Lake Store at 7,238 and hits 9,088 feet when you reach the Gem Lake Damn (an 1,850 ft climb that is up hill all the way) Start hike early to avoid the heat of day while climbing. The Silver Lake Cafe servers great food.
