Time to Turn
Last night about the time I should have been getting ready for bed…I kind of went stir crazy. The smoke from the King fire has been horrendous and all I could think of was getting out from under it. I thought of going to the coast, but it was looking too foggy. So I threw some things together, called the dogs, and headed for the Eastern Sierra. Lundy Lake was one of my stops this morning and I got this shot next to the beaver pond just as I was getting ready to go explore somewhere else. Under normal circumstances, I'd say areas north of Mammoth Lakes between 6-8000' should be at peak in the next two weeks. Most of the aspen I saw have that lime green cast to them, but a lot of trees that have turned are just drying out and shedding brown leaves. At least I got to go out and play, explore a bit, and have a little time to escape the heaviest smoke.
