Here are some more shots from a recent trip into the White Mountains.
It was a long journey and we have so many great shots from the day, so we split this up into a few different posts.
Here is a video with a few shots from the entire trip. Some photos from the beginning of the day, climbing up Silver Canyon with the big horn sheep, are here.
This post has photos from the middle section of the trip, from the top of Silver Canyon to the Patriarch Grove in the Bristlecone Pine Forest.
The Patriarch Grove is all the way at the top of the range, near White Mountain Peak. It sits at a bit more than 11,000 feet, which makes for a nice spot to do lunch.
The views on the way to the Patriarch Grove are incredible. You can see into the Sierras from Lone Pine to Lee Vining. There’s also a cabin visible from the top of Silver Canyon, looking west. I’m not sure what its purpose was, but lets go with a miners’ retreat. It’s tough to see the cabin, but we always spot it when we get up there and take some photos of it.
That’s all we’ve got today. Coming up, we’ll one more set of photos from this trip. We’ll also have some from more recent trips around here to catch the fall colors. Come back later in the week.
