75 – 100% – Mammoth Lakes – A picture is worth a thousand words, certainly these captured by Mammoth Lakes color spotter Mark Rudyk.  He reports that fall color has moved rapidly from zero to hero in this Eastern Sierra center of lodging and recreation.  Mammoth Lakes and its vicinity are approaching peak and gorgeous.

50 – 75% – Convict Lake – Color spotter Jennifer Heintzelman reports Convict Lake is now gilded and peaking.  A lovely photograph by Statia Dougherty, a guest at the Convict Lake Resort illustrates this.

      JB, at a lower elevation, yes, but not at the elevations you’re seeing here. They have about a week to go before they lose leaves. By Nov. 1, the color should be peaking between 6,000 and 6,500 ft.

    Hi!!

    Thanks for all your updates. Including the latest one of Yosemite. 🙂

    I am going to Mammoth Lakes area Sat evening and will be capturing June lake, Silver lake, Mammoth lakes, convict lake on Sunday.

    Is there any spot in particular that you would recommend??

    Another question: What would the fall condition be at yosemite valley floor in the first weekened of Nov??

    Thanks for these updates. They are really helpful. 🙂

    Regards!

      Great questions, Jyoti. Definitely the June Lake Loop this weekend should be spectacular. As you come down Hwy 120, to the right is Lee Vining Canyon. There are some very nice spots there, then continue toward June Lake, stopping as you find color spots. Late afternoon is not the best time to shoot, as the Sierra shade the color on the east side. I’m sure you’ll find the entire loop to be beautiful. Mammoth Lakes are glowing, as is Convict Lake to its immediate south. If you head down toward Bishop (a lot to do in a day), the Bishop Creek Canyon is still showing beautifully, but at lower elevations (7,000 t0 7500′). Yosemite should be lovely the first week of November. We’ve gotten very few reports from Yosemite, though the color has been higher so far. JP

    Hi JP!!

    I went to June Lake and Silver Lake area yesterday. Unfortunately for me, I forgot my tripod… so didn’t quite manage to get the captures I had hoped to get.

    I still got a few snap shots and wished to share here with you guys.

    Cause had it not been for this blogpost… I would have missed California fall colours for the 3rd year in a row. 🙂 Thanks to you guys( all of you who are spotting colours and reporting in this site)… I was at least able to witness some of the fall colours.

    How can I share my pictures with you guys??

    Regards!

      Jyoti — Sorry to hear you left the tripod at home. When shooting in the Sierra a tripod is a necessity. I know that too and sometimes get forgetful. We’d love to see your shots and others taken… send them to [email protected] and I’ll post them. Also describe where the shot was taken and when. JP
