FYI, the Lady & I crossed the Sierra Nevada west to east last Saturday over Sonora Pass. The aspen leaves were just staring to turn on the east side of Sonora Pass and at Leavitt Meadows. Photo below.

There was very little color as we returned home through Hope Valley.

 

Today we crossed the Sierra Nevada west to east over Ebbetts Pass. Much more color in Hope Valley now. It's a nice start. Now, lets get some cold weather to go along with Fall!

 

And FYI, today is the opening of rifle deer season in the area. Lots of guys in camo and orange hats driving the roads.

Nice picture Ski. Love the aspen in the fall. Colors are coming along  in the UP of Michigan too. We figure we were a week ahead of peak this past week.

Beautiful! Thanks takesiteasy. I have memories from the early 70's of fall colors in the driftless area of Wisconsin where my family is from. Oh, how I need to go back. Your posts poke at that need. :)

Ski like your crisp clean image of the aspen leaves with blue background!! Thanks for the update.

We went to Colorado to check out the fall colors and who would have thought masses of people also wanted to see them.

Got smoky sky's and decided to head to Teton to hope for better non smoky sky's but some smoke here to. Tonight we had to stay in a campground ($17.00 WITH GEYSERS card) and I just can't believe how many people are out, Gros Ventre campground is packed!!, now a neighbor rv started their generator at 8:15 pm. I miss the quiet of dispersed camping.

Here is a few cell phone images.
