Autumn in the High Sierras 10-17
(1 in a multiple picture album)
I went up to the Sierra Nevada late in September this year. I found that I was too early for color up in the higher elevations.
But luckily I had decided to drive Bishop Creek Road on my way which I had never done on other trips.
Mother Nature gave me a pleasant surprise. She had colored the lower elevations before she had the higher. I am assuming that the valley in which Bishop Creek lies gets colder temps before the high country for some reason.
Whatever the case, it was beautiful.
