Sierra Fall Color Report 10/25/13

Michael Frye has a fall color report on his blog from  two weeks in the Sierra. He reports:

there was still a lot of color around the June Lake Loop and lower Lundy Canyon when we left on Wednesday. This image, from Wednesday morning, shows the diversity of eastern-Sierra habitats, with a creek, aspens, willows, and sagebrush-covered hillside.

On my way home I checked out the color in Yosemite. The higher-elevation dogwoods along Highway 120 were beautiful, with lots of red leaves. They should still be good this weekend, but I suspect they won’t last much longer. In Yosemite Valley, the yellow big-leaf maples were gorgeous. The black oaks also looked like they were close to their peak, but seemed less colorful than in most years. The cottonwoods and valley dogwoods were still about 40 to 50 percent green, so they should peak in another week or two.
