Convict Lake is on the eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada’s and north of Bishop, California, USA. Mount Morrison has the appearance of a cardboard cutout, a very unusual appearance.
Convict lake was named after an incident in 1871, where a group of convicts escaped from prison in Carson City, Nevada. A posse, led by Sheriff Robert Morrison, encountered the convicts near the head of what is now Convict Creek. Morrison was killed in the encounter, and Mount Morrison was named after him.
