Autumn Leaves Fall Like Mammoth Lakes Lodging
Starting about September 25, just when the weather temperatures start to drop, the leaves start to change color before they drop, and autumn moves in. The leaves change colors because the cold air moves in from the top of the mountains and as the weather goes chilly at night, the trees begin to conserve their energy. It is a site to behold. You will want to bring your camera to see the Mammoth leaves change color. Read on how to get your free copy of the guide where the best viewing is. |
The trees that are stuck in the canyons start turning first, so you can see rivers of yellow, red, and orange in the pockets of the mountains. They spread down toward the lakes, where the water is chilly and the wind off the lakes can surround the leaves. Then the colors move into the flat lands. The forest service and Mono County put out guides to help you find the best places to see them, and on what day they are at the peak. Yes, it's a Kodak moment.
When you are traveling during fall season, you'll want to get your Mammoth Lakes rentals with a view so you can see all the trees. Even though the trees go dormant about late October, activity in Mammoth is at a bustle. The hikes into the back country are gorgeous at this time of the year and some call this the most spectacular time of the year. It's cool so you need long sleeves, but the sun is shining and days are definitely still warm, unless of course a quick snow comes in. Clearly a 3 day weekend away from hot, smoggy, traffic in Los Angeles is good medicine for the soul. Don't wait until Thanksgiving thinking you'll see the colorful trees then. They'll all be gone and just a memory. So plan on coming up and check out the guide and information on Mammoth Lakes fall colors.
