Autumn Aspen colors in Lundy Canyon.


After my sunrise shoot around Rock Creek Lake and a quick hike into Little Lakes valley, we spent the afternoon in Lundy Canyon before heading over to Bodie. I decided to leave my tripods in the truck and took a short hike. This image was shot not too far from the trail head leading to Lundy Canyon Falls. Tall bushes obstructed my view from the second beaver pond, preventing me from getting those reflective shots that I love to shoot. This was one of those rare occasions that mid-day light worked for me.

Planning to visit Lundy Canyon? The last 1 1/2 mile is on narrow dirt road. We saw a few cars that didn’t make it to the trail head. Personally, I wouldn’t even attempt to drive to drive all the way to the end without a high clearance vehicle or a 4×4. Also, don’t forget to bring mosquito repellents.
