California Fall Color Updates 10/12/17

California Fall Color has new reports today

Walker River –  often overlooked as a fall color location. along a dirt road, 15 miles north of Bridgeport, to Obsidian Campground in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest yesterday to find aspen and willows in all stages of peak, coloring the dense forest near the stream with avocado green, gold, orange and rose.  West Walker River (7,800′) – Near Peak 50-75%) GO NOW! See photos at  West Walker Discovery

Henness Pass Road –  travels east/west across the Northern Sierra, south of CA-49, roughly between Camptonville and Downieville, but slightly to the south.
As the lowest pass through the Sierra Nevada, you’d think everyone would drive it, but don’t expect to jump in your sedan for a leisurely Sunday drive, as only high clearance off-road vehicles can operate on it. This is wild country dotted with ranches, wildlife, spots of fall color and not much else. Henness Pass (6,920′) – Near Peak (50-75%) GO NOW! See photos at  Henness Pass – Ever Heard of It?
