Fall colors at Mono Lake: It’s not too early to plan your tripAugust 21st, 2016 by Nora, Lead Naturalist Guide
Yes, I know, it’s only August, and the canyons are still glittering green with quaking aspen trees. But if you are thinking about visiting in the fall, now is the time to start planning your trip!
The colors usually start to change in mid-September and peak around mid-October. By November, the leaves are usually on the ground and snow has arrived. Different areas peak at different times, so let us do the scouting! The Mono Lake Guided Trip program has five trips scheduled in October to take visitors to the hottest spots for fall colors during the peak.
Locations will change as the colors do and we hope to experience a range of coloration, from just beginning to full-on peaking brilliance. Your guide will be scouting each day for new, secluded peak spots so you don’t have to struggle against the crowds.
Not only will you see the gold and rust and fire colored leaves bursting up the canyons, but your guide will also tell you about the biology behind color changes in leaves and aspen ecology, so this trip is great for photographers and nature enthusiasts alike.
