Eastern Sierra Fall Color: Lundy Canyon 10/8/17

California Fall Color has a report for Lundy Canyon

Lundy Canyon, about a mile or two up the canyon, where they entered an aspen grove that was cloaked in golden and red leaves.

Lundy Canyon Campground had the best color she saw and estimates Lundy Canyon to be at peak, so we’re gonna declare it Peak of the Week.

note that these photographs were taken before this week’s wind event. Today, winds gusting to 30 mph are predicted for the Eastern Sierra and days will remain breezy for the rest of the week.

So, we caution that areas that have turned color will likely lose lots of their color, but those in the process of turning will continue to hold color.

The June Lake Loop is nearing peak and could peak by the weekend, though is peaking in locations, such as at Gull Lake, seen below. Again, the wind caution applies.

Lundy Canyon (7,858′) – Peak (75-100%) GO NOW!
June Lake Loop (7,654′)- Near Peak (50-75%) GO NOW!
