When California Comes Alive with Color, Here’s Where to Go

An up-to-date blog on the state’s fall foliage change.

Want to know where and when to view the optimal fall colors in the Golden State? Then John Poimiroo is your man. He creates the seasonal blog www.californiafallcolor.com between September and Thanksgiving with up-to-date reports on foliage changes from just about every region of the state.

Here’s a sampling of a recent post:

Bishop Creek Canyon – Peak (75-100%) at South Lake, Parchers and Lake Sabrina GO NOW!

Bishop color spotter Gigi de Jong has committed to submitting weekly reports from her color-rich area, this autumn. Her reports will be supplemented with observations from visiting and resident color spotters and photographers.

Gigi writes that on Sunday (9/23) Bishop Creek Canyon was “awash in yellow,” at its highest elevations, saying she caught the sun just setting with its “last rays catching the peaks and opposite ridge lines” as “aspen groves shined like polished lemons tumbling down the ravines,” with crisp and bright trees lining the road, “in counterpoint to the soft, reddish-orange tinge that illuminates bare peaks ahead.”
