In mid October I packed up the car and headed to Northern California to visit friends and family in the San Francisco Bay area. I drove via Highway 395 that skirts the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada mountains in the Owens Valley and headed West over the Tioga Pass Road (route 120) across the high country of Yosemite National Park. I stopped along the way in Aspendell, located about 20 miles east of Bishop, CA and caught the aspen trees in their prominent yellow fall color, the trees were nearing peak color at the 8,000 ft. elevation and it was just gorgeous! Snow fell one night and the peaks of the mountains were dusted in white and the meadows along Tioga Road (Hwy 120) in Yosemite received a few inches of snow. All in all wonderful venture into one of the most scenic spots in California.
