Sagehen Meadow

The meadow is located along a dirt road off Highway 120 which goes along Mono Lake. It is a very popular fall foliage location, but more importantly it is a year-round destination for bikers, hikers, snowshoe hiking, campers and equestrian riders. There is a 20 mile loop which is used by bikers in the summer.

We heard about this fall color spot just as it peaked. There is a road to the summit but it requires a 4 wheel drive. Tom explored the road leading to the summit but we decided we had plenty to photograph in the meadow. While the hill was impressive, I felt the real opportunity was in getting some more practice in pano-photography!

 Ah, this could be fun!! Road as we approached our destination.

 Yep, I would say it is peaked!
