Autumn in the Sierras

Autumn in the Sierras

November 2, 2011

Last weekend Todd and I spent a relaxing few days with our friends Mark and Gloria in their beautiful mountain home. The weather was warm in the daytime, but the low slanting light still made it feel like fall. Most of the trees in the area are evergreen, but there are enough aspens to give a golden glow.

On Sunday morning we drove into Truckee and found this view of the river.

Later in the afternoon I left the group watching football by the fire and took a walk. The Yuba River runs right by the house. It made me happy.

I understand why our friends love it up there so much. It is three hours and a world away. It was lovely to see the area in its autumn splendor, especially since snow is predicted for Friday.

I hope we’ll have the opportunity to do a compare-and-contrast with winter white. Hint, hint. :)
