With Labor Day Weekend and summer (unofficially) behind us, we are beyond ready for fall.
From mid-September through October (and sometimes into November if we’re lucky), a spellbinding contrast of fall colors makes a brilliant backdrop for scenic drives, hikes, fishing, kayaking, cycling, ATVing, horseback riding, festivals and events, and so much more. Plan to spend a few days to see all the autumn hot spots, and to fit in other must-sees like Bodie and Mono Lake.
Mono County, with its impressive range of elevations (from 5,000 feet to nearly 12,000 feet), typically has the longest fall foliage period of California’s 58 counties. But, timing is crucial – start planning now and don’t miss the show.
Mono County’s Board of Supervisors approved almost $30,000 for additional fish stocking this season. Come cast a line before the regular season ends November 15th.
Yosemite National Park’s Peak Hour Reservation System ends September 30th. Starting October 1st, a reservation is no longer required for entry, making it easier to pop up Tioga Pass to high county favorites like Tenaya Lake and Olmsted Point.
Please always check Weather & Road Conditions before traveling to Mono County.
We all have the great responsibility to care for the Eastern Sierra – please be sure to bring your Mountain Manners.
