The Little Walker River drainage is nearing peak. Same with the Conway Summit area. It's amazing how much color change occurs each day.

Spent the weekend on the annual campout with my parents in The Valley. Not too much going yet, some frostbite from the storm, but potential is still there. The meadows were nice, and it was great to see water flowing over all the falls:

Stopped in Lee Vining Canyon, Lundy Canyon, Parker Lake, and June Lake on the way home:
