We took our annual trip up to the Eastern Sierra a couple of weeks ago and this year we timed it pretty well. We spent a night in the Alabama Hills west of Lone Pine, a night below the trailhead to Parker Lake west of Mono Lake, and a night in the Buttermilk area west of Bishop. We also drove up Tioga Pass to Yosemite and made our way around the June Lake Loop. Hope you like the pictures.

Here is the campsite in the Alabama Hills. That is Mt. Whitney (14,505') on the right side on the horizon.

Here are a couple random shots to end the TR.

Anyone ever seen a 4X4 Corvette before? There was a car show in Bishop and I think this guy was heading there.

Well done! Looks like you got there before the snow and the wind stripped the leaves off the trees -- good timing!

Great pics of my favorite area of CA! Caught many a fish in Bishop Creek in the last 40 years.

I was in the June -> Bridgeport area the last part of September. Not much color then. You beat my low temp record of 19F. [emoticon]

I feel like I've been there before. I"m still amazed at how many different views of the same range of mountains can be had by different fotogs. Nice job. When we were there I saw the before and after of the big windstorm that came up and took 1/3 of the fall leaves with it.
regards, as always, jefe
