Fall color photographic Lassen National Forest driving tour Oct. 26

The Almanor Ranger District of the Lassen National Forest will be offering a photographic driving tour on Friday, Oct. 26.Participants will have the opportunity to view fall colors and learn how to best photograph trees and foliage in the forest.Although it’s hard to predict the best time for viewing fall colors, there is sure to be some great scenery.

The tour will begin down Highway 32 to catch the red color of the Indian Rhubarb along the creek, early in the day.

Depending on the show of color the tour may continue down the highway to visit the lower Deer Creek area, where there are large stands of Big Leaf Maples.

Other locations will be added depending on where the fall colors are putting on the best show.

Tour participants will meet at the Almanor Ranger District office across from the airport in Chester at 8 a.m. and return between 3 and 4 p.m.

Some travel will occur on gravel roads so SUVs or high-clearance vehicles will be necessary and carpooling will keep the number of vehicles to a minimum.

Participants are advised to bring a camera, lunch, water, warm clothing and a full tank of gas.

A tripod is optional.

For more information about the tour, call Barbara Jackson at (530) 258-2141.

Sign ups with contact information will be required, as inclement weather could cause the tour to be canceled.
