Claudia and I went to the Millpond Music Festival in Bishop this weekend. We were trying to figure out how many years we’ve been going to this event. Eleven? Twelve? Regardless, we love this festival. Crowds are small, the camping is great, and we get to spend time with friends. Oh, and the music is wonderful!
On our way home last night we drove up Rock Creek Canyon, as I had read a report by Inge Fernau on Carol Leigh’s Calphoto site about some early color there. We did find some aspens changing. They were mostly small, scrubby ones near the trailhead, but I was able to make this photo of yellow leaves surrounding a juniper.
It’s still very early for fall color, but by the end of the month the high-elevation aspens on the eastern side of the Sierra should turning. I’ll keep you posted on what I see and hear.
