  Bloody Canyon, Glacial Moraine, Mono County, California
Photograph taken 23-Sep-06.

There are two valleys formed by moraines that can be seen exiting Bloody Canyon. Walker Lake and Walker Creek are in the largest valley that exits to the right. Moraines forming this valley have been dated as Tahoe, Tenaya, and Tioga age. Exiting to the left is the older moraine that defines Sawmill Canyon. This moraine has been dated as Mono Basin age by Sampson and Smith (2006). The peak on the left is Mount Lewis, and the peak on the right is Mount Gibbs.
