Fall Color Photos
« on: October 28, 2012, 03:42:23 PM »
Started this topic so everyone can share their beautiful Eastern Sierra fall color photos!  So donít be shy, letís see your photos of the aspens turning bright gold on your last fall trip to the Sierra!

I hear Lundy Canyon and McGee Creek are still in full bloom but Rock Creek Lake leaves are pretty much all down.  I might make one last run and get some late photos and fishing.



CSI Lake trip in first week of October.  I was a little bit early this year for the best colors, but the fishing was good!

Here are a few shots taken on 17 Oct at Aspendell.







These are along South Fork Bishop Creek, towards South Lake.





I think this was just after Moses struck the rock.


My favorite.

Great thread.  OldSarge, the one right after "My favorite" is now a screen saver.  I can almost smell the musty scent of fallen leaves.
Let me wake laughing from a nap in the afternoon under the aspens in the fall.
