McGee Creek Up to 90%
The higher canyons and drainages in the the High Sierra are peaking and color continues to descend. Sarah McCahill in Mono County reports that she hiked up McGee Creek near Mammoth Lakes and “Wow, was it beautiful!”
Sarah’s photos show the transitional character of mixed aspen and cottonwoods with lots of green evolving to yellow and gold.
30-50% — McGee Creek Canyon. There’s still a lot of green. Some aspen groves are colored from 75 – 100% gold while others seem not to changing at all (0-25%).
Words of advice: don’t just look up to the trees… look down as well, lots of color is found among the grasses, sedges and brush, particularly in drainages. Enjoy your hike, as Sarah did, email your dated photos to us and we’ll post them here for all to see. Happy fall color hunting!
