A gorge cut through volcanic cliffs
During the month of autumn, what can be more intriguing than photo-exploring along a canyon that was formed over time by lake waters flowing through sheer volcanic cliffs?
Wilson Canyon lies in west central Nevada, along Nevada State Route 208, 13 miles west of the small town of Yerington and runs through the Singatse Mountain Range.
This grandiose two mile long (3.2 km) gorge was carved over the years by the water from the Walker River which flows from the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
A serene point as the river idles through the canyon where on its departure; it drops approximately 120 feet (37 m) on a 1% grade.
A famous rock formation, "The Watcher" looks out from the canyon wall in full headdress.
After enjoying a beautiful Indian Summer day at Wilson Canyon, I am anxious to begin my next photo-adventure. Subscribe to and follow my blog as I share what I have found along the journey.
What an exciting and interesting photo-adventure this day has been. I love it when I am drawn to an area and not knowing what to expect I get treated to new experiences.

Photography places me in the moment where I can share that moment in time. It becomes a life story as represented by my interaction with the scene. The happiness and beauty or the sorrow and strife; how I focus leaves a lasting impression that might touch the viewer on a spiritual level.
