Parchers Resort has published its first fall color report of the season for the Bishop Creek Canyon:
Our staff took a tour of the canyon this week intending on producing a full report however things are still a bit too green to warrant a detailed photo report. We can relay that the willows are turning yellow and there are a few spots, mostly on the middle fork of Bishop Creek below Lake Sabrina and just below Parchers Resort on the South Fork, that are showing a tad bit of color. The aspens certainly are lightening up and appearing much more of a lime green as opposed to the deep dark green hues of summer.
With the nights getting markedly cooler and the days shorter, we hope to see the fall transformation to begin in earnest by the end of next week. Our canyon’s elevation ranges from 8k feet to nearly 10k feet which makes our neighborhood one of the first to show off the glory of the autumn color.
