Aspen Grove Peaking in San Gorgonio Wilderness
Heather Heinz writes that she was, “raised on the East Coast and ever since moving to Southern California this site (California Fall Color) has helped me feel more at home every fall. After reading that the aspens in San Gorgonio’s Aspen Grove were possibly turning, I called into the U.S. Forest Service San Gorgonio Ranger Station, whose staff confirmed the report.
“So, I drove up the mountain yesterday afternoon and the aspens were in full color! We had a pretty strong storm in the middle of last week that blew off some of the lower leaves so I’d guess the aspens won’t last long. GO NOW!.”
