Fall foliage pilgrims



Fall foliage at Convict Lake also has begun. It’s probably peaking now, compared to 1 1/2 weeks ago when I visited. The light rain clouds were relentlessly swirling over Laurel Mountain and Bloody Mountain. Mt. Morrison was peeking out as a pall of gloom was slowly seeping into the canyon. The array of green/yellow foliage still dazzled the fall foliage pilgrims at the shore though.

NOTE: Convict Lake was named after an incident back in the late 19th century where convicts escaped from a prison and hid here. They got eventually encountered by the lawmen near a creek now called Convict Creek. Mt. Morrison was also named after a posse whose name was Robert Morrison who got killed in this encounter.
