Found the lesser known Boot Arch exploring Alabama Hills, CA this weekend.
Along Highway 4 in Alpine County, Silver Creek flows East out of Lower Kinney Lake.
An easy spot to get to from the junction where highway 88 & 89 meet in Hope Valley. There’s a small parking lot and you walk along a path towards the river. It’s pretty quite except for the occasional sounds of a car or truck on the highway. You come to a bridge and the Carson River follows under it. The late afternoon sun lights up the recent snows and the ripples of the water.
I pulled one from the archives. This photo was from a Southwest trip in 2010. My sister hired a photography guide and he showed us these ‘off the beaten path’ places. As in the photo below, many locations had usual rock formations set in an other-worldly mysterious landscape.
Drove into Yosemite Valley last weekend for a quick overnight stay. Played tourist and walked and drove to all the well known spots. This view from the Merced River looking towards El Captain never disappoints me.
Early morning sunrise, looking towards Sawmill Ridge in the Eastern Sierras. As the sun rose the light hit the ridge and lit up the mountain with color.
Went looking for fall color this weekend and ended up at McGee Creek near Bishop. Most of the trees had already dropped their leaves this far south in the Sierras. Found a cool little spot by the creek and did some long exposures.
