The first time I drove to Bishop, California, to look for fall colors was years ago with my dad. We had a lot of fun wandering on some of the country roads. Now, whenever I go on this trek, I think of Dad. I figure he is with me on these drives, enjoying the fall colors once again. Last year on my trek, there was limited color; it was apparent I was a bit too late for the best viewing.
This year, I opted to go on this Nature Trek the third week in October rather than the first week in November. Just a little change in timing, but the color was much more impressive. My main goal was to drive the June Lake Scenic Loop, but I also traveled some other country rounds along Highway 395 near Bishop.
It was a beautiful, colorful autumn day!
