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.

With my Nikon and tripod, my goal is to recreate the scene as it appears in nature, to preserve in a photographic image the awesome, yet simplistic beauty of the scene that waits around a bend or over a hill. Sometimes it's a colorful landscape, and many times I'm allowed in the presence of the numerous creatures that adapt to life in the wild.
