Four Seasons in NorCal are worth the wait.
The FALL season here in Sacramento is by far my favorite time of the year. The colors seem to appear out of nowhere and are with us for at least 2-3 months. Nearby, in the city of Folsom it is easy to spot the seasonal colors near the American River. I need to learn more about the various indiginous trees and their names and local history, but that’s for another day. It is pretty magical to walk by parts of town that are for the most part ordinary, except during the Fall. Camera in hand, I walk and snap the vibrant colors as if it were my first time.
Later in October I will drive over to the Sierra Tahoe area to check-out Hope Valley and the incredible Aspens that I’ve been coming to since moving back to the Sacramento area four years ago.
So enjoy this awesome time of year, wherever you are and if you find yourself in need of more colors drive over to the Lake Tahoe area for rest and relaxation and stunning shades of orange, yellow, brown and green.
