Bench Lake

Symmetrical Arrow Peak behind Bench Lake

Beautiful late afternoon light and shadows from the "bench" looking across the upper end of the South Fork of the Kings River with Taboose Pass to the right.


Fly fishing on the south eastern shore of Bench Lake prior to exiting via Taboose Pass. This particular trip was memorable at the finish because it was an unplanned loop. We had left our car at South Lake and crossed the Sierra Crest over Bishop Pass. Deciding the idea was worth a long hike across the Owen's Valley floor to the highway,we gambled that someone would take pity on the desert rats and give us a ride back to Bishop.
