McGee Creek

McGee Creek flows down an impressive glacier carved canyon and one of the best locations in the eastern Sierras to enjoy and photograph the fall colors. McGee is unique in the fact that not only are there aspen but cottonwoods that line the creek. In the fall the cottonwoods turn bright yellow creating a glow in the canopy if you time it right. After a decent six miles hike, I ducked in the trees to find this beautiful scene of McGee Creek. The late afternoon sun was illuminating the bright yellow cottonwood leaves. Occasionally, the wind would blow some of the leaves down making it perfect for shooting McGee Creek.
