Virginia Creek is a popular fly fishing stream that runs alongside and west of Hwy. 395 in Mono County, California. It flows from the Virginia Lakes into the Bridgeport Reservoir.
Rising to the west of the creek are the 12,000-foot peaks of the Sawtooth Ridge of the Ansel Adams Wilderness and Yosemite National Park. There are many local destinations for fishing, camping and the colorful Fall display of Aspen trees nearby. The Bodie Hills and the infamous silver mining Bodie ghost town lie to the east.
I especially liked this view of the Virginia Creek watershed because of the S-curve of the willows and colorful aspens as the creek winds its way down into the canyon to the north. This view enticed and allured me to hike down and along the creek in search of more beautiful scenes and light to photograph. This area of the High Sierra offers some of the most accessible and spectacular fall color viewing areas anywhere in California.
