Can anyone report on the fall foliage anywhere in the eastern Sierra but especially in the June Lake/Mammoth area.

Few weeks to early Vic, last week of Sept (higher elevations) and first two weeks of Oct (mid to lower elevations), check on this site for updates:

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Have a safer backcountry experience by using the HST ReConn Form 2.0, named after Larry Conn, a HST member: http://reconn.org

At Toms Place drove down from Reno. Yes no color to the north of here. But chilly weather will bring it in a few weeks.
