Courtright Reservoir Panoramas

Home > Sierra National Forest Courtright Reservoir > Panoramas

On the western shore of Courtright Reservoir is a granite dome close to the Trapper Springs camp ground. It rises over 500 feet above the reservoir and rewards a little bit of hiking with an incredible view. There is an easily accessible, small plateau on the dome's eastern face where I caputred the first two panoramas. The third panorama was taked farther up the dome from a small rock shelf  just below the peak. The photos were taken in October, 2008, and the reservoir was only half full.

I found some old film photos I took in 1995 at the same location. It is interesting to compare the area over a 13-14 year period.
