Falling for Fall
It’s mid-summer and a hot day. What better time to turn to thoughts of cool autumn days?
For those who wonder if California Fall Color will reappear with the autumn colors… no fear. I’ve spoken with the site’s sponsors and they’ve all confirmed their interest in renewing participation for the coming year. So, California Fall Color will start reporting from the first signs of color.
About this time, last year, we published a teaser about fall and on Sept. 12, our first report described the state of color change at the highest elevations. That’s about right and that’s what we plan in 2012. Consider this to be the teaser. However, there’s no prediction of fall color within it.
We know it will happen, but for how long at any given elevation, no one can say with certainty. What we can predict is that the first dramatic color will appear above 9,000 feet during the week before the first day of autumn. So, if you’re inclined to plan your travel, set aside time to travel to Bishop, then up Bishop Creek Canyon into the High Sierra and you, too, will be falling for fall.
Look for our reports to start in mid September.
