Mono County Fall Color 10/27/14

California Fall Color has a new report for Mono County Fall Color. Go website to see photos

Lower Rock Creek Rd Peak – 75 – 100% – Drive about 2.5 miles down Lower Rock Creek Rd. to the first major pull-out west side of the road,  park and then cross the road to hike back up the trail.  Aspens along the beautiful rushing creek are at peak now.  GO NOW

Mammoth Lakes Peak to Past Peak – Sections of Mammoth Creek Rd. off Old Mammoth Road in Mammoth Lakes still offer brilliant red and orange on the trees.

June Lake Loop/Hwy. 158  Past Peak – Even though the June Lake Loop moves to being past peak, a few stands remain vibrant, particularly around Gull Lake, at the base of June Mountain and just north of Silver Lake. YOU MISSED IT!

Lee Vining Canyon Peak to Past Peak – The lower section of Tioga Pass Rd. and Lee Vining Canyon are peaking beautifully, with some trees definitely past peak. GO NOW!

Conway Summit, Green Creek Road and Twin Lakes Past Peak – Again, though spots of color appear in the groves surrounding Bridgeport, comparative photos now show the haunting contrast between most of the trees that are completely bare and those few with bright patches of color still on them.  Overall, it’s past peak and one good gust from being stripped.  YOU MISSED IT!

West Walker River and Walker/Coleville Peak – 75 – 100% – Grand cottonwood flanking the northern stretch of US 395 and along the West Walker River are bright yellow at peak. GO NOW!
