Fall Colors in Mono County 9/18/19

Mono County Tourism and Film Commission reports

We received our first dose of SNOW on Monday! (Don’t worry leaf peepers, our precious fall color leaves remained unharmed.) Tuesday morning was beautiful throughout Mono County as we awoke to white snowcapped mountains in the extreme upper elevations of the Sierra. Most of that snow has now melted but the wind that accompanied the cold front has persisted. The wind will continue through today (Wednesday 9/18) with lighter north-east winds tapering off through the rest of the week.

All of our traditional viewing locations are right on schedule for this time of year.  If you want to see some of the first trees in California to have fall colors head to Upper Rock Creek and Virginia Lakes this week! These locations have sections of tress in full yellow and orange while the majority of the landscape is still very green. Expect the colors to fill in completely above the 9,000 foot level in Mono County next week. We should have our first Near Peak Go Now designation in next Wednesday’s report.
