California Fall Color Updates 10/25/17

California Fall Color reports for today

Shasta Cascade – Often called California’s best-kept secret, Lewiston Lake (downstream from Trinity Lake) is a prized, narrow body famous for its trout fishing.

The Mary Smith Campground at Lewiston Lake was described by the San Francisco Chronicle as the state’s prettiest. It features six glamping (Glamorous Camping) tents near the water. Traditional campsites for tent or RV camping are also available nearby.

Plumas County –Everywhere you look or travel, trees are laden with peaked leaves and dropping them incessantly.
This will likely be the last, best weekend to see peak in Plumas County. All of the Shasta Cascade is experiencing peak conditions.

Yosemite – “Go now. Just do it.”
“most of the valley floor to be 75% to past peak, with small areas still in the 50-75% range. Low elevation dogwoods mostly yellow with some green and red just starting. (higher elevation dogwoods are peaking or gone).”
black oak on the valley floor are “in full glory as well as the bigleaf maple. Most meadows are showing golden grasses and even the ferns are showing their more subtle Fall yellow.”
Yosemite Valley (4,000′) – Peak to Past Peak – You Almost Missed It. GO NOW! JUST DO IT!
