Mono County Fall Color 10/24/17

Fall Colors in Mono County – Mono County Tourism   reports below. See photos at: Fall Colors in Mono County – Mono County Tourism and Film Commission

The majority of Mono County is now past peak with the exception of the the West Walker River and the brilliant cottonwood trees located along US 395 in the towns of Walker, Coleville and Topaz.
Fall color is still hanging around parts of the June Lake Loop. Head down canyon near Silver and Grant Lakes for the best chance to catch the last bits of fall.
Lower Rock Creek Road is the only remaining color in the south end of Mono County. Take the Lower Rock Creek Trail for the last fall color hike of the season.
