Even though the temperature in Southern California was teetering around 90 degrees here in LA, it is officially fall. Many don’t realize that there are places where you can go to see real, honest-to-goodness fall color right here in SoCal. This past weekend, we ventured up near Big Bear to the southernmost aspen grove in North America. The higher elevation creates just the right conditions, and with a ride on a bumpy dirt road and a short (but easy) hike, we were there.
The leaves were just turning, and the next few weekends should be perfect for viewing the spectacular gold color of these rare aspens.
