Possibly the easiest and most beautiful hikes in the Eastern Sierra Nevada, California

Trailhead is @ Mosquito flats 10,000 feet elevation accessible by paved road. Above Rock Creek Lake just south of the city of Mammoth Lakes in California. This area is part of a stretch of Highway 395 in California between the town of Lone Pine up to Bodie, which I find very dramatic and undervisited by most tourists.

I used a point and shoot Panasonic LUMIX camera. Nothing fancy.

Ai Lin, Sorry I didn't answer your second question. I think September to early October is best. Weather is just perfect and afternoon thunderstorms which are rampant in July and August is rare. If you are in the area make sure to check out the Alabama hills near Lone Pine and Bodie ghost town!!

Appreciate that, Andrew. I’ll check these out, for sure. Perhaps next fall. Happy shooting!
