We are spending three nights in the Mammoth Lakes area (actually staying at Reverse Creek Lodge) in mid-June. We will be coming from Yosemite. I'm hoping someone familiar with the area can give me advice on our itinerary. I am trying to keep this trip somewhat leisurely.
Day 1 (a Thursday): drive from Yosemite to Reverse Creek
I don't have anything planned yet for this day, but since it is a short drive we should be there by noon or 1 pm. Is the gondola worth the cost? Anything else we might do this afternoon?
Day 2 (a Friday): visit Bodie. I want to get on the Stamp Mill tour, so it seems our best bet is to get out to Bodie early that morning and plan to spend most of the day there.
Day 3 (Saturday): get an early start and take shuttle to Devil's Postpile, hike Rainbow Falls (short hike) and maybe Minaret Falls.
Day 4: (Sunday): check out of Reverse Creek and take a canoe tour on Mono Lake. Then head home (about a four hour drive)
Thanks for any advice!
