    I am based in Bishop, California, situated at the base of the Eastern Sierra Nevada. I report regularly on the fall colors on my blog at http://www.gregboyerphotography.com. I’ll be posting regularly from now until the season ends in October. If you have any specific questions about the Bishop area I’ll be more than glad to answer them.

    The Bishop Creek drainage is just starting to show some color. Mostly the smaller trees and vegetation. The larger trees should start in the next week or 10 days.

    I shot the Fall colors in Bishop about 30 years ago, and it was great.

    Nothing going on in the Sedona, Arizona area yet. I will be going to the Grand Canyon Saturday, so I’ll see what’s going on in the north.

    Have Fun,

    I was up in the Grand Canyon yesterday, and while I didn’t see any leaves changing colors there I did see some changing color in Flagstaff. Most of the Sumac has changed to red, and these are usually the first leaves to change in Fall. I didn’t see any Aspens changing on the mountains yet.

    Have Fun,

    I drove and hiked Washington’s southern Cascades around the west side of Mount Adams last week and saw almost no fall color. A few vine maple just starting to turn along the roads, and small patches of huckleberry on exposed south-facing slopes but that’s about all. On a hike from Walupt Lake up to Nannie Ridge, there were still lots of lupine and other wildflowers in the meadows above 5,000′ elevation, especially around Sheep Lake.

    Here in southeastern Wisconsin things are starting to turn. Sumac is very brilliant, maples are starting to change, as are some aspens. Willows are also changing. The hillsides around here are starting to become a mixture of dominant greens with yellow and red having impact. Another week or so and things will really be colorful, assuming the high winds and rain we have today don’t return with the same level of intensity. Other parts of the state are on a totally different timeline.

    Have a great week,

    We were up in the Roaraing Fork, Crystal River, Independence Pass areas of Colorado over the weekend and the colors are spectacular! Right now. It’s simply beautiful; some of the best color I’ve seen in years. I’ll be posting a gallery on my website this weekend with some of the shots.
