Bishop Creek – GO NOW!

M. Fork Bishop Creek (10/1/20) Gary Young

Upper Bishop Creek Canyon is peaking and the color in these photographs speaks for itself. Go now.

Bishop resident Gary Young captured these images of layered fall color with green, lime, yellow, orange and red dazzling the eye. Haze from the Creek fire mildly diminishes what would otherwise be an unforgettable scene. Do not wait for the air to clear. The color will not get better. GO NOW!

Now that the closure of most of Inyo National Forest has been lifted, all areas of Bishop Creek Canyon and its resorts and campgrounds are open.
