On a photo road trip in July 2018 to Bishop, California, I found this cabin on South Lake Road. I have driven past this spot countless times but this was the first time I noticed this structure that was somewhat hidden behind a stand of aspen trees. Last night I won a 2nd place ribbon in a juried photo contest with the Santa Clarita Valley Photographers Association.

McGee Canyon has become my favorite place for Fall color. From US-395 you drive about two miles of paved and dirt/gravel roads to a parking lot. Along the way are views of Lake Crowley with the White Mountains in the distance. You also pass several stands of aspen trees, some with a mix of evergreens. On the trail the Red Mountains are always in front of you. From the parking lot there are trails for 11.5 miles round trip, that pass several small lakes. I only walked about 2 miles before turning around. That took about 1.5 hours, walking at a photographer pace! The trail has a constant elevation gain, 2,510 ft. in total, so keep that in mind. Also, you are starting the hike at about 8,000 ft.

On the way to Tom's Place and Rocky Creek Road, I exited US-395 and discovered Little Round Valley. Then I followed Crowley Lake Dr. to get to Tom's Place. Some aspens had changed color but most are still green. The best find was a large field with grazing sheep!

Lake Sabrina and the road to get there. Red and yellow Aspens are in full color at high altitudes but this show will work its way down the mountain!
