If you've been searching for the best source of information and stimulating discussion related to Spring/Summer/Fall backpacking, hiking and camping in the Sierra Nevada...look no further!

Just returned from two nights bagged in Valley of Fire (NV), and what did I do? Yup, drove more miles to check out fall colors! :D

Drove a couple hours up Highway 89 north of Truckee. Golds are really popping, and some reds are starting to wake up a bit, too! Still not full-on fall, but I figure in two weeks we'll be there! :) I'll post a couple modest shots when I get a couple minutes tomorrow!

We spent the weekend on the east side checking out the standard sites and fall colors. My very non-professional photos are available on my website (in sig). The colors were nice up toward south lake and north lake - oranges were the best at North Lake. Convict was okay, and there were some nice spots along the June Lake loop as well. We dove back over Sonora Pass and there were some nice colors down below (around the MCMW Training center), but nothing much above. The best part was actually sunset on Saturday - there were some amazing colors in the clouds over the valley!

Was up at South and Sabrina yesterday, colors are turning but mostly yellows, some oranges. Didn't make it up to North - guess I should have. Photos I took aren't so hot, it was gray on Sunday and everything looks washed out :(
Yes, that sunset was really nice Saturday night!
