Silver Lake Resort
We spent two nights up at the Silver Lake Resort, which is one of the lakes in the June Lake loop. It is a very quiet spot and hubby was out one afternoon, across the general store and cafe, down by the boat rental shack when he heard a movement in the bushes. It was a deer! He said she wasn't afraid at all and he was able to take several photos of her. He actually took all these photos, as I was off wandering along the horse trail above the cabin! The 3rd and 4th photos are of our cabin, which was right across from the duck pond. (Guess who fed the ducks?)...heheheheh! We BBQ'd some steaks Sunday night and they were delicious. After dinner, we sat outside and I saw the Milky Way for the first time in ... years! The resort is open through October 19th, then they close for the season and will reopen in April of 2012. We've been trying to get the kids and grandson up there, but coordinating everybody's schedule is nearly impossible, so we just go by ourselves. Here's a link to their website: http://www.silverlakeresort.net/
