Past Peak – Hope Valley - John and Patty Brisenden report theirs was a “beautiful, long fall this year.” The secret is out, that stunning video posted on California Fall Color earlier this autumn (look back in the archives) was produced by their daughter, Elizabeth. And, their other daughter Annie, with her husband PJ and Elizabeth produced a winter video for the Hope Valley resort. Though, it is now past peak at Sorensen’s spots of color are still to be found in and around the resort, though we couldn’t leave the Hope Valley without posting these shots taken last week. Now, though it’s mostly gone from the Hope Valley, read previous articles here to see where you can still see the color at peak, as peak has now dropped to 6,000 ft in elevation.
