From Bishop, take CA-168 west into the Sierra Nevada. This spot is west of Aspendell, just beyond the road to Cardinal Village.
The valley just above Cardinal Village and Aspendell in Bishop Creek Canyon (Eastern Sierra, CA) bursts with color on an autumn day. The groves of aspen in this valley reach peak color at different times (and in different hues), creating a kaleidoscope of fall colors. This was on display this particular day, as the grove of smaller, gnarled trees was nearly past its peak of orange, while other groves were either reaching peak yellow and/or still sporting some green.
