Last weekend I was up in the Tahoe basin playing hooky from my responsibilities, and perhaps 50% of the aspen there were turning colors. In Hope Valley, it was surprising that only about 30% were in their fall colors this late in the year. I did get a photo of these aspen at the Lake, and on second thought, I like it more than I did at first.
Soon, the snow will fly in earnest, and all this year's leaves will disappear under a white blanket, but for the next week or three, we will have an excellent fall display in the high country. Make it up there if you have half a chance.
