The light filtering though the golden leaves of the two aspen trees tints and colors the perfectly white bark. Deep reds and grays indicate the volcanic nature of the peaks. When I arrived, there was no one taking pictures at this location. This one seems like it's right out of one of those calendars you see in the mall each year. Framed by the white trunk of two Aspen trees, fall colors surround a small beaver pond near Lake Lundy in California's High Sierra mountain range.


I have heard it said many times that California doesn't have seasons. Obviously that is not the

case, you just have to where to look and there is no better place to look than the Eastern Sierras. We drove south from Bishop all the way north to Sonora Pass and there was spectacular color all along the trip and the color changing daily. There was so much color, it was hard to know where to go and when to stop. We came away with some stunning mountain scenery that is typical of the very unique Sierra Nevada mountains.


This shot goes quite well with the Cascade in a Rainbow Forest Autumn image I posted just the other day.
