We drove the June Lake Loop one afternoon during our stay in Mammoth Lakes, and it was raining hard. Past the “portal” through which Highway 158 passes (with Reverse Peak on one side, and Parker Bench on the other if I’m not mistaken) and in the open of the Mono Basin the weather was much lighter, and as we stopped at the Grant Lake reservoir to take a look back, the clouds suddenly opened and briefly illuminated a portion of Mono Craters east of us.
