    The link for the 2880×1500 version at Apple gives a “Page Not Found.” Gee, thanks Apple.

    Are you sure this is Bishop, CA. It certainly looks like it was taken in the Wasatch Mountains in Utah – one of many possible canyons there.

    • Paul says:

      Yes, that is why it has the name High Sierra. The mountain range outside of Bishop is the Sierras, and the lake pictured appears to be in the High Sierras (upper portion of the mountain range). Because Apple is based in California, they appear to be naming all of their new Mac OS releases after various California landmarks. The Wasatch in Utah is beautiful too though, and has many similar scenes!

    Thanks! I really love this Wallpaper of North Lake!

    Too bad that place is in a state filled with so many Libtards!

      You have the IQ of a protozoa. California is the sixth largest economy in the world and has some of the most beautiful landscapes imaginable as you can see in this stunning scenery. The Californians you attempt to insult also invented and built every piece of technology you use and enjoy, including what you’re using right now.

      Always a laugh to hear gibberish like this from one of Dump’s Turnips. Go back to brachiating, More On

    That’s North Lake, just west of Bishop CA. Very popular spot with photographers in the fall. Been there many times, but never caught it like that!

    I must admit that I’ve never liked OS X default wallpapers (except maybe Aqua Blue), but this one is really something. Thanks Paul!
