Take 395-South and turn right to Ed Powers Road. Drive 2.4 miles and turn right into 168 W (You can also take 168 W on 395-South, past Ed Powers Road, but early morning the sign is difficult to read...happened to me). Turn right into the drive to North Lake.
I was a week late going into the Eastern Sierras to shoot its autumn splendor. A passing storm had cleared most of the trees and what remained was a shadow of the spectacle fall had presented the previous weeks. Yet, that morning, sunrise at North Lake near Bishop didnt disappoint.
