Come spend a night in the heart of the Sierra just outside Yosemite National Park at Yosemite Pines RV Resort and Family Lodging.

Some Color But Nothing to Write Home About

| September 16, 2009

Fall in the Eastern Sierra is punctuated by brilliant golden groves of aspen trees. Photo by Loyd Schutte.

I’ve been getting emails and twitters all day about fall color in the Eastern Sierra. Some trees are indeed turning yellow but they’re still mostly a yellowish green. Looks like it’ll be another week before we really start to see the great yellow colors that make fall in the Eastern Sierra so beautiful and picturesque.

If you’ve never been to the Eastern Sierra to see the aspen leaves you HAVE to go. At least just once. It’s awesome.

Dan Mitchell’s got some great info on the aspen leaves also. Looks like he’s just as eager as I am. Now that I’m well I’ve already planned my expedition. Just can’t figure out how to tell the wife.

  1. I haven’t been up there since almost a week ago, but I’m guessing the good color might start the weekend after this one or so.

    Thanks for the update! I’ll be there 10/9-10/11 and will post updates as I get them…

  3. I’m sure I AM just as eager – I’m hoping to get over there about three times in the next few weeks. Luckily, I have a very understanding wife who seems to like my photography… 🙂
