Located in Inyo County (near Bishop, California), North Lake is at 9500 ft. elevation. The air was cold and crisp on this autumn morning, producing ice on the water and frost on the grass. The sun highlighted the aspen trees on the west shore, producing a brilliant show that made me forget about the cold.
The autumn color in the valley of McGee Creek, California was outstanding this year. This image was taken just below the McGee Creek Pack Station, looking up to Mt Aggie in the top right ... beautiful color could be seen running up its slopes. What a wonderful place for taking in the fall colors!
