Snow Dusts Peaks Above Mammoth Lakes – Go Now!
High peaks surrounding Mammoth Lakes were dusted with a couple of inches of snow this past weekend, as an early storm passed over California. Color spotter Christie Osborne says the snow did little to change the steady progression of color at Mammoth Lakes, which has now begun to descend from the high country. She reports, “More color is starting to show in Mammoth Lakes at the base of the Sherwin’s, in Town and at resort levels. Also look for color starting to break at the base of the Sherwins and near Sherwin Creek Campground, and expect to see more yellow flowing down canyons.” This week, at higher elevations, above 8,500, look for orange and yellow colors to be at full peak.
