I woke up one morning to catch the sunrise at Convict Lake and on my return trip to my campsite I decided to venture down McGee Canyon. It was still fairly early in the morning and I was exploring the area when this pack train wandered by, presumably on their way to bring supplies to some people in the upper areas of the canyon.

The mountains of McGee Canyon are composed of metamorphic rock. On the left is Mount Baldwin and on the right is Mount Aggie.

    LOTS OF WONDERFUL COLORS….NICE COMPOSITION, THE EYE IS PULLED TO THE LEFT BY THE DIRECTION OF THE PACK TRAIN HEADING FOR THAT CANYON. ONE OF YOUR BEST. (That’s just my opinion)

  • thanks so much. it means a lot. if you follow the trail up the canyon you end up in Yosemite backcountry. I’ve heard its a long tough hike.

    My son and nephew just got done hiking from Red’s Meadow to Tuolomne Meadows. They were going to hike down to Yosemite Valley, but blisters from new hiking shoes made them decide to cut the hike a little short of their goal! Other firends are on a 2-week hike of the John Muir Trail. I’d love to be out there taking pictures…but, I only do condo-camping at my age!! BTW – beautiful picture, Justin!!!

  • I wish I could be there too! I recently moved to NYC and miss the mountains. I want to go back soon.

    Are you in NYC permanently? I hope you’re able to get back to your mountains soon!!!

  • it’s not a permanent move and I will definitely be back within the year. I can’t wait for my first trip back. I haven’t been there since May.
