Big Pine Country

This year, in the second week in October, I started my trip to the Bishop area to appreciate the lovely show of fall colors evident in Nature.   When to visit is always a bit of a crap shoot, but others had been posting wonderful photos, so I headed out a bit earlier than past years.  I also planned to visit some other canyon drives rather than just checking out the June Lake Loop Drive.

My first stop this year was a short one wandering a bit into Big Pine Canyon.  It was already late afternoon when I started.  I was tired and still needed to secure a hotel, so this was a quick trip. I basically stayed on Glacier Lodge Road and did not even go all the way to the Lodge.  Short, but pretty drive!

GREAT RESOURCE:  As I planned this year’s trip, I stumbled onto California’s Eastern Sierra Fall Color Map (Inyo & Mono Counties).  It highlights 22 scenic spots where fall color is likely to be found.  I visited some new spots this year, but have more places to see in future years.

  1. Thanks for the hint of the Fall Color Map. You’re right, it’s usually a crap shoot for us too and we usually don’t go at the right time. 🙂 You captured the beauty of the area though.

    • It is pretty area! Next year I need to try to get out and about earlier in the day–others posted some gorgeous sunrise shots. But I am not a morning person! That map, however, was a great find–it shows lots of spots to add to my must-visit list.
