The sun still shines bright across the High Sierra this time of year, but the heat of the sun's rays is starting to dwindle. The air is turning crisp while the leaves change colors and begin to flutter to the ground as winter approaches. ⁣

The High Sierra is full of #aspengroves that turn brilliant shades of yellow in #fall. They can be so bright, it feels like they've drown out the sky and reach all the way to the sun.⁣

The #fall glow covers #Yosemite, creating reflections of glorious magnitude. If you've never seen the park this time of year, it is a wondrous time. Perhaps a #bucketlist item for the future is in order.⁣

Almost too bright and beautiful to believe... except it's the High Sierra, so we would expect nothing less. Here's to a glowing, bright, beautiful #fallseason.⁣

It's as if the leaves have sucked in all the sunshine and are glowing from within. The yellows are getting brighter as we head further into #fall. How many #fallcolors have you found in the High Sierra?⁣

Something is happening... Happy Fall everyone! You may not do as much leaf peeping this year, but that doesn't mean Mother Nature isn't putting on a show.⁣

Now that's a sweet moment in time to cherish. And that glowing tree by the shore... just wow! Mother Nature must be practicing her photography staging. 😆⁣

Fall is everywhere in the High Sierra. Is it us or does the water looks "bluer" surrounded by pops of yellow and orange? We think the colors are magnificent.⁣
