Fall Colors in Full Bloom
Fall colors begin to peak in Mammoth between the 1st and 2nd weeks of October. With the winter chill coming down from the mountains, the trees start to change their colors and the sweaters come on. It is a beautiful time to take a vacation and get away from the traffic, heat and smog of Los Angeles. Mammoth Lakes is just gorgeous, and what makes a perfect 3 day weekend are the lower rates! |
The trees change colors as the nights are cool, yet the days stay warm. Autumn is the off season so many of the businesses drop their prices up on lodging too. When the colors hit, you'll see the canyons start to take on colors of red, yellow, bright orange, and the Aspen trees, start to come alive. There are other kinds of trees such as Dogwood, Maple and many other kinds of deciduous trees that also look like they are on fire! Since it is colder in the canyon, and warmer on the flat lands, you'll see the pockets of color as you drive into Mammoth and at nearby Crowley Lake, June Lake and even a bit through Bishop. You might even want to take a drive up to Yosemite which is just 45 minutes north and tour through the park to see some spectacular landscapes.
The forest service tell us where are the best fall colors are each year. You might want to stop in their office, pick up a map and ask which canyons are at their "peak". It is definitely the time to take your hike, go fish, or go for a stroll where you can check out what our secret season number 3 is all about.
