Aspendell, not Aspendale. In California? Way higher in elevation than Donner Pass & Truckee, this Eastern Sierra granite canyon is located north of Mount Whitney, along the upper portion of Bishop Creek. The large groves of aspen trees can be spectacular in autumn. West of Bishop CA / Hwy 395 @ the dead end Highway 168. You can reach it in less than an hours drive up, from the 395/Main St/Line St intersection... with minimal sightseeing stops along the way.
