Beaver Pond.   This is far as I went up Convict Creek Canyon, about 3.5 miles up the canyon.  Colors were great up to this point.

Great shots of the pond. We've taken two horseback rides up there, what a neat spot. I understand that that the FS  tore out the dams and removed the beavers some time ago and guess what. Maybe Scout knows the story.

Day 5:  Fall Colors at Convict Lake



Convict Lake never fails to impress with classic color around most of the lake.  Convict Lake, Convict Lake Resort, the campground and the creek were all looking good but the fall colors around the lake looked the best this autumn.

They were upgrading and paving Convict Lake Road but no delays during my visit.  Convict Lake also has completed a new paved walkway on the south side of the lake that looked nice for strolling or just checking out the fall colors.

Day 5:  Fall Color at Mammoth Lakes



Nice fall colors observed at Mammoth Lakes in the Lakes Basin, on Old Mammoth Road and at Sherman Creek.  Not the best I ever seen but still worth a visit.

One of the fun things you can do In Mammoth Lakes is off-roading.  You can four-wheel drive right to the best fall color if you’re adventurous enough.

Mammoth City, opposite colorful Mineral Hill (now known as Red Mountain) where the Mammoth mines are located, stood the town of Mammoth City.  During 1878-79 sprouted a mining camp of perhaps a thousand people.  Mammoth City - the center for the nearby, smaller camps of Pine City, Mill City, and Mineral Peak - is said to have had 22 saloons, 13 stores, 2 breweries, 2 livery stables, 5 restaurants and 2 newspapers.

The Mammoth Lakes Basin is always a pleasant place to visit, especially during fall when it’s practically void of people.  Vistas are very nice too!

Day 5:  Fall Colors at June Lake Loop



June Lake Loop was my last stop of the day for fall colors.  Rarely does June Lake Loop fails for the fall color spectacular test!  June Lake Loop was in fine form this autumn during my stay in the loop.
