From the Road: Fall Color along the West Walker River, CA

We're looking southwest at mountainous terrain along the West Walker River, with what looks like granitic rock—the light-colored rocks in the foreground and on the tree-covered high slopes in the background—and some dark-colored, mafic-looking rocks exposed in the middle-distance ridge that slopes down toward the river from right to left. These mountains, which are on the west side of Highway 395, are technically part of the Sierra Nevada.
