Convict Lake Eastern Sierras

I captured this scenic lake in mid-October when the fall colors were surrounding Convict Lake. The oblong-shaped lake is filled with water as clear as glass, encircled by a three-mile-long access trail and boxed in by the steep backdrop of the Sierra Nevada, highlighted by the 12,241’ Mount Morrison. Convict Lake was originally carved out by glaciers, and at up to 140’ deep in some places, it’s one of the deepest lakes in the region.​
