A few weeks ago some family came to Bishop to visit Roma and me and we had an exciting couple of days. We went out into the White Mountains, to Mono Lake and Adobe Meadows, and up into the Buttermilk area.
But before all of those adventures, Poncho, Penny and I went up into the Bishop Basin in the truck for some shots of the valley before the fall colors set in.
We caught the sunset just right and found some amazing reflections from the mountains above Sabrina.
We even saw a bald eagle soaring above the lake, presumably looking for fish.
Read along and enjoy. The fall colors are really here right now so it’s the time to get out. I’m going to take Roma up to Sabrina to scout it out in the next few days.
The next few shots are of Lake Sabrina, looking west.
This is taken from the west side of the canyon, looking east toward the Cardinal Pinnacle and the White Mountains.
They’re doing a lot of work on the road up there right now, making the road wider and safer.
The Cardinal Pinnacle.
This is the road on the side of North Lake. This is one of our favorite spots to shoot fall colors.
A beautiful sunset, looking to the west.
There’s the eagle we spotted. It’s always exciting to spot of them no matter where you are in the Eastern Sierra.
