California Fall Color 10/27/17

California Fall Color reports

Chico –  the U.S. Forest Service’s seed farm in Chico (First Report), whose main road is lined with colorful Chinese pistache, now just approaching Near Peak. They should be good for another two weeks.
another “pistache tunnel” along the “Midway” between Chico and Durham, and found “awesome colors” at forested Bidwell Park
Chico (197′) – Patchy (10-50%) – While Chico doesn’t yet show enough color to get a GO NOW! alert, fall color there is progressing rapidly. Chico should be peaking the first week of November. On our must-see list are: Midway (between Durham and Chico), walnut orchards, Bidwell Park, Esplanade and Abbey of New Clairvaux in Vina.

Donner Lake – Aspen on the south side of Donner Lake have lost about 40% of their leaves, putting them just past peak.
flushes of nearly stripped yellow aspen were being reflected in the lake.
Donner Lake (5,935′)- Peak to Past Peak – You Almost Missed It.

UC San Diego –exotic boulevard trees at UC San Diego (fall color creds to whomever can ID them).
UC San Diego – Peak (75-100%) – How else could we classify such beautiful color? GO NOW!
