Leavitt/Sonora/Dunderberg (7 photos)

Fall Colors at Dunderberg Meadows, Lee Vining, California, September 2016.

After the morning stop at Mono Lake we continued further north on Highway 395. We hiked a bit at Leavitt Meadows and then drove up Sonora Pass Road. On the way back we had late lunch in Bridgeport and then briefly stopped at Dunderberg Meadows again – I was hoping to get better photos of the fall colored Aspens, backlit while the sun was still higher. The sun was a bit too low for that already actually.

Sunset at Dunderberg Meadows (3 photos)

Fall color trees at sunset, Dunderberg Meadows near Conway Summit/Bridgeport, Mono County, California. September 2016.

The clouds that began to move in towards the end of our Red Cones hike looked promising so we went out for sunset. I had fond memories of Dunderberg Meadows and the colorful Aspen trees there. I was hoping to be able to combine them with a colorful sunset!

Night at Lake Mamie

Stars and Milky Way reflect in Lake Mamie at night, Lake Mamie, Mammoth Lakes, California, September 2016.

We’re back from a week-long visit to the Eastern Sierra where we did some hiking and day trips based out of Mammoth Lakes. On the evening of our arrival we had an early dinner and then took a walk with Toni at Horseshoe Lake. The sun was setting and we could easily wait for the stars to come out. At Lake Mamie, it was especially nice to see the stars and Milky Way reflect in the calm water.
