Here’s something new for CaliforniaFallColor.com… a postcard selection of photographs taken on one weekend.

Alena Nicholas sent these sunrise and sunset images of Lundy Canyon, the June Lake Loop and Convict Lake in Mono County. Though it is Near Peak, much of the June Lake Loop has yet to turn.  That indicates June Lake will continue to peak for a week to two more weeks.  So, GO NOW!

Color spotter Alena Nicholas sent urgent text messages this past weekend, exclaiming about the incredible color to be seen in Mono County.

Alena knows the Eastern Sierra well, having photographed it many times in the past, though wrote “The Sierra are GLORIOUS!!! Never seen June Lake and area finer…”

Color spotter Patricia Costa followed our advice and headed to the east side to send us photos of the same storm swirling and dropping snow amidst the color while visiting Mammoth Lakes, Devil’s Postpile National Monument, June Lake and points along US 395.

Color spotter Darrell Sano reminds us why we go out in the rain to look for fall color.

Because by doing so, we see things, wonderful things, that would otherwise remain undiscovered.
