Beauty All Around

"Local's Summer" is upon us. Discover fall, the Sierra's best kept secret.


These trees are smart. If you were a tree and had to chose where to grow, the shores of #LakeTahoe would not be a bad choice. Bravo! ⁣

We may have lots of evergreens in the High Sierra, but when fall dots across the landscape, we take notice! When does #LakeTahoe & #EmeraldBay ever disappoint?⁣

Some people think of #fallcolors in trees and leaves... but fields of #falltime are fun too. Leave it to #YosemiteNP to have everything #falltastic!⁣

Our beautiful Eastern Sierra mountains look nice flanked by #fallcolors. Soon enough the peaks will be covered in snow, but for now, we will enjoy what the #fallseason brings us.⁣

Now that's a hike you'd have a hard time outshining on color! Even a neon outfit wouldn't upstage these #fallcolor beauties.⁣

Up or down... #fallcolors are reflecting everywhere across the High Sierra. What's been your favorite #autumcolors this season?⁣

These roads were made for #roadtripping... so that's just what we'll do! #Fall is a fun time to hit the open road & watch all the colors go by. ⁣

Pinks & oranges galore! Where do you think the best colors are in the High Sierra?⁣

Where once you may not have been able to see through the trees, #autumleaves take over, except no longer blocking your view but rather crunching under your feet. See anything new on your #fallhike?⁣

Even just a little color can change your whole experience. Isn't #fallfoliage wonderful? #gooutdoors⁣
