So out we went in them thar hills in Search of Randolp Scott's Campfire. Actually we didn't have a good tour guide or even tour brochure which used to exist so we don't really know where the locations are. If you want to read a really interesting search for locations here is one by another blogger I read
the photos below are shot with my iPhone. I also photographed the area with the big camera but haven't had time to process the images yet
|Some tall mountains in the distance|
We went out early one morning to catch the good light on the morning sun.
The famous arch. Not to be mistaken for the McDonalds Arches in Lone Pine
Tried to capture the sunlight as it peaked from behind a rock.
Basking in the sunlight with Mt Whitney and Lone Pine Peak in background.
The peak on the left is actually Lone Pine Peak which is only 12,000 and change high. the pointed one way in the far back right is Mt Whitney, some 6,000 ft higher than where we parked. "Do people actually climb this in one day?" Sraddha asked? "Not sure." I replied alknowingly.
The road takes us up 3500 ft elevation in a very short distance.
Parts of the canyon floor don't see light at this time of year. You can see below the icicles haning from rocks above the waterfall. I was sitting down to get this photo
Interesting granite boulders and Douglas Firs were juxtaposed over the canyon floor. Must've been a big avalanch in eons past.
Later in the day I went out to photograph the evening sun and shot this shadow. Thats' me photographing the hills
