California Fall Color 10/26/17

California Fall Color reports

Mono County
If you’re in Mono County on the east side of the Sierra Nevada, you will find nice pockets of color along Lower Rock Creek Rd.,beside the West Walker River and along US 395 in Walker, Coleville and Topaz.
A few stubborn splashes of fall color are also hanging on near Silver and Grant Lakes on the June Lake Loop.
Otherwise, Mono County is mostly Past Peak.

  • Lower Rock Creek Road (7,000′) – Peak (75-100%) GO NOW!

  • Walker Canyon (5,200′)- Peak (75-100%) – The banks of the West Walker River are still lined with gold. There are heavy shadows here in the morning and afternoon for long exposure photography. Go mid-morning for the best backlit leaves. GO NOW!
  • Towns of Walker & Coleville – Peak (75-100%) – This is the prime location for this week. The big cottonwoods around town are looking beautiful and displaying wonderful color. GO NOW!
