Just a few more weeks and the aspen will be turning. Where's your favorite place for fall color?

Yosemite Valley.

A few places I love to visit in fall: 1) El Capitan Meadow - especially for sunset. 2) There's a spot by the Merced & North Pines campground that is idyllic (and N. Pines is usually empty by then). 3) Stoneman Meadow. While there isn't a lot of fall color in the trees there that I can remember, the grasses turn yellow and I love the contrast of the yellow grasses with the evergreens on the meadows edge; then Half Dome above.

I could tell you my FAV-O-RITE place but then it would be completely swamped with Marmots.

There are a couple of really nice Aspen spots in the Yosemite Backcountry. Quite a hike to get to them though.

I always liked Eagle Creek/Long Valley off of 108 going up to Sonora Pass. Tons of aspens back there, but the road's crazy bad.

I don't mind the road. It's the people driving it...
