Once again, our trip leader Lyle Trusty, picked the perfect time to capture the peak of fall color. For the third year in a row, brilliant color was found during the first week of October.
This year, the most brilliant color seemed to lie between 7000-9000 ft, with bare trees above, and still green trees below.
Our “base camp” in Bishop consisted of hotel rooms with nice warm beds, hot coffee, and Denny’s nearby. After gathering for meals, and exchanging information on the “hot spots”, smaller groups split up and headed out.
