Mammoth vs June Lake

We want to photograph Mono Lake at sunset. We will have spent the day in Yosemite (after 4 days there) and spending that last day exploring Tioga pass and Toulumne Meadows. I have reservations in Mammoth Lake for the night but am now thinking that if we want to be at Mono Lake for sunset then perhaps we should change our reservation to June Lake. that way we could get there around dinner time, check in and head back out for sunset. That might be a long ride back for sunset.

What are your thoughts? I did consider Lee Vining but would prefer not to stay there. We will be heading to DVNP the next day and have reservations there at Furnace creek. Time is 1st weekend of July.

Thanks

Either works - its about a half hour drive further from Mammoth Lakes to June Lake Loop. Both are nice areas to stay at - we tend to stay in June Lake Loop area. For scenic beauty, both June Lake Loop and Mammoth Lakes are better to stay at than Lee Vining. Lee Vining is a nice small town on busy highway 395. We tend to choose June Lake as we can stay at lodging and walk in minutes to one of the lakes.

Whatever you do 1st weekend of July ties in with our Fourth Of July holidays - it will be a busy time of year.
