This morning we headed up Big Pine Canyon to find some autumn color. We were successful and had a good time wandering around with our cameras.

|Big Pine Canyon Color|
After about an hour we broke off and headed for Bishop Creek and North Lake. I had been able to research the area, and was hopeful that we would be close to the peak time for color. We stopped at several places along Rte. 168 and found some great opportunities.
|GREEN AND GOLD|
|NEAR NORTH LAKE|
We then pushed on to North Lake. As I was getting my gear out of the car, another Subaru Forrester drove up and the driver jumped out and haled me. It was a member of one of my camera clubs, The PhotoNaturalists C.C.
|NORTH LAKE AND REFLECTION|
|EASTERN SIERRA COLOR|
|YELLOW, GREEN & MTNS.|
|ASPEN COVERED ROAD|
We spent several hours up Bishop Creek and in the North Lake area. On the way back down we had to stop at a small grove of aspen that was directly in our view. It was a fun day with a number of photo opportunities. This ended our trip to Yosemite and the Eastern Sierras.
