After the disappointing mourning at Mono Lake, we decided to head to another one of our favorite shooting spots to see if our luck is any better. Instead of heading up the usual route, we went up another road that we had not gone up before. It was a four wheel drive dirt road that was new to us. It went up to an are of the hillside covered with Aspens that in the spring time would be great for birding. We got to the top of the mountain and looked out to see everything from Conway Summit to the south entrance to June Lake. But that wasn’t the only thing we saw.
Behind us were some old buildings, upon further exploration we found an old mine. The sierra’s are filled with these kind of buildings, finding them is always fun. Well the structure itself was kinda cool but the images that it produced wasn’t the greatest. The light just wasn’t right. It nice discovering a new place, it made the day less disappointing. We carefully headed back down the mountain.
