If you are up for hiking in the dark before dawn, try heading to McGee Creek in the Eastern Sierras. In this shot we hiked the mountain until we reached this colorful valley. Here you can see the golden birch trees leading you to the heart of the mountain. Lavish yellows, purples, and greens rise up to the snow-flecked, dramatic peaks. At the higher altitude, the mountains were beautifully highlighted by the rising sun.
