A few photos from our quick trip over Sonora Pass and down to Mammoth on HWY 395 in our quest to see what was left of the 2016 fall colors. The previous week's storms had gotten rid of most of the amazing color, but we still managed to find great splashes of gold in McGee Creek, where we took our Christmas card photos. I must say that Zephyr played a large role in framing and pushing the shutter release.
Fishing was nixed at Convict Lake because of extremely blustery winds, so we decided to hike the lake's perimeter instead. Zephyr made it 1.3 miles and rode the final mile and a half on my shoulders. Not bad for a tired and hungry three-year-old!
Enjoy the photos!
