Two More California Fall Color Updates 11/7/16

California Fall Color has two new posts today. Here are the highlights

Keddie Wye, Plumas County orange-colored peaking black oak in the forest surrounding the wye are just as attractive to color spotters, as Dennis Hayes demonstrates in his vibrant photograph.

Sanborn County Park  The Santa Cruz Mountains have lovely pockets of fall color: at Roaring Camp and Big Trees Narrow Gauge RR in Felton, at Big Basin Redwoods State Park in Boulder Creek and along Skyline Drive.
Sanborn County Park (Santa Clara County Parks District) is an oft-overlooked location to spot bucolic color.  It’s found by taking Skyline Blvd./Hwy 35 from Patchen Pass to Saratoga Gap.

You’ll drive through some fantastic sections of yellow and orange bigleaf maples. The bigleafs are the best they have been in years after slightly above normal precipitation last winter (bigleafs like water).”
Black oak is also peaking with California hazelnut providing some extra color in the understory. At this location the peak should continue for another week or so… until the next winds blow through.
