Photo of Aspens in Bishop Creek Canyon

By October 3, 2006Photo of the Day

The small community of Aspendell is tucked in the Bishop Creek Canyon near the road to Lake Sabrina. The canyonsides around Aspendell are carpeted in groves of quaking aspens (Populus tremuloides) which glow yellow and orange in autumn. This is a view from the road just above Aspendell, looking toward the Lake Sabrina and North Lake basins.
