More from Bishop Canyon







One day we took a drive down to Bishop and up to Bishop Canyon.  There are several lakes there including North Lake, South Lake, Sabrina Lake, and the water holding lake down below Alpendell.  By mid-day, the thunderheads were forming overhead.  We FINALLY drove down to Bishop (about 3 p.m.) for lunch, then stopped to buy groceries there at the Von's market (and fill up with gas).  It was a long day, but worth it, don't you think?

  1. In the years we lived north of Bishop in the Owens Gorge, we or I would hike out of Bishop Creek once or twice (or more) every week. The trail out of South Lake was my favorite. These shots make me miss that part of the Sierra.

  3. Looks lovely and lush. So unlike the desert. What a nice change of pace.

  4. Wow those Aspens are beautiful. I find them far more attractive than the Birch over here in Sweden. But hey, every plant has it's function and purpose in an ecosystem.

    One day I'll have to visit the Sierras. Can you believe I've never been ?
