The first day out we needed most of the early morning to get our camp in Bishop organized.  So, we focused on one area today…The Bishop Creek Canyon.  The road heads straight west out of Bishop and works its way up through typically beautiful Eastern Sierra wilderness.  On Bishop Creek road you can head straight up to lake Sabrina at the end of the road.  You can take side trips to North Lake and South Fork.  We focused on the main road to Sabrina.

At 8,000 and up feet the Aspen were in all their fall glory.  As expected, at the highest elevations the leaves were nearing their “Use-by-date” and yellow was turning to orange and some browning.  All, in  all, our timing couldn’t have been better.
