What a great time of the year and what a pristine place to view some of the remaining color that fall so humbly bestows upon us.  It’s a real treat to be able to wander along the roads of the eastern Sierra for just one purpose; observing the beauty of nature’s change of season.  The bright and alive green of summer slowly starts to change and before long becomes a vibrant, intense explosion of yellows and gold’s with just a touch of everlasting green, adding just the right amount of contrast to the road less traveled.  There were not many people traversing this patch of roadway on this day.  That’s just fine with me.  It makes this little stretch of heaven just that much more inviting.

Traveling along lonely country roads is an enchanting pastime and one I thoroughly enjoy.  After some days of hiking and camping high in the Sierra, I took a few hours to slowly decompress, to get used to sitting and lighten the blow of acclimating to full blown civilization.  Not sure where this field is.  Somewhere off highway 395 along the eastern side of the central Sierras.  It’s such incredible country.  I know there are many places in the world filled with beauty and wonder.  This area is one of my favorites.

It’s fall again!  I love this time of year.  Much of the time it’s very soft, especially compared to the height of summer and its intensity.  The light is softer, the darkness of day slowly fading, the colors in nature turning inward, readying itself for winters slumber.  It’s also a great time to be in the mountains, where scenes like this abound.

It’s so amazing to be here in amongst the Joshua trees.  I fall into complete awe every time I’m there.  Of course, I’ve never been to the moon, but, I get a sense that this is how I’d feel if I ever did go.  It’s so quiet and unique.  As I did on this particular hike, being off the roads is especially inspiring; wandering in and around and through this incredible topography.

Of all the times I’ve been up to the Sierra Nevada mountains, I’d never been there just to see the fall colors.  I guess it seemed too touristy without taking the time and energy to do some serious hiking.  Well, this time there was very little hiking and a lot of “leaf peeping” as I’ve heard it called.  Photography was the major interest and activity.  And all I can say is, Wow!  What an incredible place to go and be!  Vivid color with brilliant contrasting blue skies.  I was as giddy as a kid in an candy store.
