Fall Foliage, Rock Creek, California

Each year, for our anniversary, my husband and I celebrate with a little trip to Yosemite and/or the Eastern Sierras.  One of the things we hope to see each year is the fall foliage.  Sometimes we’re lucky, sometimes we’re not.  This year, the display was stunning!  Late last week, the colors were amazing up and down US Route 395 in Mono County.

Photos were taken on Rock Creek Road on Friday, October 5th, 2012.


  1. Oh my gosh! Before moving to Hawaii last year, we used to camp at Rock Creek every October. Our boys just love it there. The Eastern Sierras is one of the greatest playgrounds on earth!


    1. There was a campground there that was absolutely surrounded by yellow and orange leaves. It was shockingly beautiful!


  2. Rock Creek is where we stayed! We had a great little cabin. I fell in love with this region and couldn’t believe I’d lived in Southern California my whole life and we’d never previously explored this area. We followed parts of the John Muir trail and I can’t wait to go back! It’s been really fun to experience the area again with you. 🙂


    1. The mountains over there are our favorites! The photos my husband took (on a borrowed higher quality camera) came out MUCH better! Maybe I’ll post those later in the week… they capture the colors better… 🙂
