The McGee Creek hiking trail is located off Highway 395 south of Mammoth Lakes and north of Tom's Place.
In this scene is the Pack Station closed for the season with the horses trailered down the mountain for the winter.
The road ends not too far beyond the pack station. A trail parallels McGee Creek, headed up into the heart of the Sierra Nevadas. It is about a 3 hour hike to the heart of McGee Canyon, a very colorful geological wonderland. The area is also fine for trout fishing.
Here are the distances to popular fishing lakes - 6 miles to Round Lake, or 6 to Grass Lake, and Steelhead Lake trail is 7 miles.

Beautiful autumnal colours along the lower part of this valley. In the higher altitudes the snow and ice take over. A marvellous view, a a very good picture.

Bonito paisaje. Esas montañas nevadas me resultan muy interesantes, ya que no estoy acostumbrado a verlas.
Thanks for sharing this great landscape.

hello Ray, this is something new for me. The hiking trail must be marvelous (when not too high on the rocks). In autumn with all the golden trees it looks breathtaking.
Warm regrads MAlgo

now this is an amazing photo - well done! The view is wonderful and you made the most of it. The rugged peaks partly covered by snow make the upper part of the composition cold and rough while the rest of it is full of warm colors and more delicate lines.
I love the tones in here as well as very well given contrast.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice day

the autumnal colours of the trees are nicely complemented by the surrounding mountainside.
It`s a spectacular landscape that has the look of an oil painting,well done.
