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.
