Little Lakes Valley Trail (9/1/14) Alicia Vennos/Mono County Tourism
If CaliforniaFallColor.com has a purpose, it is to share the beauty of California’s autumn. That often means venturing to places we hadn’t known about before.
I was called by a kindred spirit this week in the person of Casey Schreiner, editor and founder of Modern Hiker. I’ve admired Casey’s well-written and informative blog for some time and when he called to see how we might collaborate, I was more than ready to take a hike with Modern Hiker.
If you haven’t read Modern Hiker, you’ll find wonderful recommendations on hikes throughout our state that are both inspirational and energizing. Our society spends a lot on gym memberships, diet fads, self-improvement programs, medications and counseling, and why we do baffles me. As, the easiest, least-expensive and most-effective tools we have for a healthier, more fulfilling life are found at the end of our legs… our feet.
They can take us to places where nature’s beauty can cure what ails us, in ways none of those other aids can.
Casey has asked his readers to post trails leading to beautiful fall color. Similarly, I’m asking our readers to post fall color they see that is reached by trails. The Little Lakes Valley Trail, seen above in early September, is one of those trails. You’ll find other recommendations at ModernHiker.com.
Happy fall color viewing… and hiking!
