Mid to late October seems to be the best time around Fallen Leaf Lake and the Lake Tahoe basin to view beautiful golden aspens and other annuals in fiery hues. Weather is pretty awesome too, with clear, blue skies and temperatures in the mid 60s to low 70s all week!
The lake is calm and glassy, so I really want to be out there on my paddleboard!
Instead, I went for a little walk and took some photos.
Many of the aspens and other annuals haven’t even turned yet and with mild weather in the forecast, colors will be vibrant for the next week or so. If you are in the area, come on out for a hike, paddle on the lake, or just to sit and take in the fresh air and amazing views. If you’re not in the area, contact me to schedule your fall 2012 meeting at Stanford Sierra and enjoy the serenity and beauty of Fallen Leaf Lake firsthand.
