The Autumn Laden Road

The Birch burst from green to an inferno of orange and red hues sprinkled through the evergreens, and the Kokanee Salmon journey upstream. Time to visit museums, warm trails, and final lake trips.

Summer is officially over. Early Autumn in the Sierra Nevadas is still warm with light breezes but there's an excitement in the air for the upcoming holiday season.

Light storms roll in and out over the Tahoe basin. Many nature enthusiasts enjoy the long walks through meadows or collecting pine cones in the shady glens. Squirrels dart from tree to tree or scurry across the ground, gathering provision for the winter.

Packing for this season is the easiest.

Apparel

It is a long sleeve shirt and shorts, or short sleeve shirt and pants, type of weather. We always suggest still bringing a jacket in the car. It's Autumn though, so definitely still nice enough to stroll light.
