Day 3 started early.  We headed to Convict lake to catch the sunrise.  Not only did we catch the sunrise, we had a near-full moon setting over the far hills as the sun was rising.  We couldn’t ask for more!

Next stop was Lundy Lake. We heard the colors were just starting. But, as soon as we turned up the road, we knew we were in for a real show.

Last stop for the day was Conway Summit…just a little further north. As you round the first bend the fall color scene overlooked Mono Lake. What more could you ask for?
