NEW fall photos from BLMer Bob Wick!   #SeeBLM

“I took off early yesterday to do a marathon trip over to the Eastern Sierra to get an aspen fall-color fix.  I was afraid that I would miss the leaves this year but there were still some dramatic colors showing.  I coincided last night’s trip with the October full moon–the Hunter’s Moon.

The Conway Summit Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC) is managed by the BLM California’s Bishop Field Office, adjacent to U.S. 395, so it offers some of the most accessible and spectacular fall color viewing areas anywhere in California. The backdrop is formed by 12,000 foot peaks of the Ansel Adams Wilderness and Yosemite National Park. The last of the color will probably last through this weekend unless rain/snow knocks off the leaves.”

A little Monday motivation from your public lands – snow dusts falls over the Eastern Sierra. BLMer Bob Wick took these photos of Bodie Hills Wilderness and Conway Summit in BLM California several years ago.  Some of our favorite photos of the area!  #SeeBLM

Happy Halloween! Our public lands are always welcoming, often stunning and occasionally a little spooky. Check out this haunting picture of Conway Summit Area of Critical Environmental Concern in California, which includes this week’s full moon – the Hunter’s Moon.
