Sierra gold lines Bishop Creek. Along the eastern Sierra Nevada, well-maintained roads lead up into canyons where you can hop out and walk as little or much as you’d like. Dozens of canyons feature frothy creeks, twinkling lakes, and quivering aspen against a backdrop of snow-topped peaks. Along with stark images of Bodie Ghost Town and Mono Lake (particularly at sunrise and sunset), this trip is a photographer’s dream. Photo courtesy Jared Smith, GM Parchers Resort.
