Product Description

Owen’s Valley And Bristlecones

The block-faulted Owen’s Valley is hemmed in by the Sierra Nevada on the west, and the White Mountains to the east; both ranges rising to over 14,000 feet. We’ll base out of Bishop, CA for this four day photographic adventure. Ancient rock art and several wildlife refuges are found in the valley bottom. On either side of the trench, dawn and evening light paints warm tones on the granite and limestone peaks above. Northward the amazing and surreal tufa formations of Mono Lake are a photographer’s dream. The lake is also host to a variety of bird species. Southeast in the White Mountains, and above 10,000 feet, live the ancient Bristlecone Pines. A good road provides easy access to these colorful and gnarled trees, some in excess of 4,000 years old. Over time they have survived the severe elements and even fire, to provide our cameras with a plethora of shapes and textures.
