Hi Adam,
What a great time to be there. I will be coming up next Friday for a 2 night 
stay in Lee Vining. Please keep me posted (off line or on) as to where you 
find color. My guess is that June Lake area down to Bishop has peaked, but 
where you are is going to begin to glow.
Have a great time,
 Bob Adler
Palo Alto, CA

We're in Bridgeport tonight having driven up from Davis yesterday afternoon.

I have to report a distinct lack of autumn color - September has been
warm. But overnight temps are now below freezing and the aspens are
yellowing. The locals believe that by Tuesday the color along 395
should be coming on pretty well and by the weekend should be pretty

The only real color we have found is on Lundy Canyon Road north of Lee
Vining before the Conway Grade.

The fishermen report good luck with the trout, however, and we have
found the Silver Maple Inn as pleasant as ever. The Hayes Street
Cafe's breakfast is still first class with sticky buns that are a meal
in themselves.

Tomorrow we'll get up early to climb Tioga Pass with good light
streaming in from behind us (I hope.)

Winds have been very strong and are forecast to be over 50 MPH at the
summits tomorrow.

In Bodie I tried to shoot some HDR images. We'll see how they come out.

Best to all of you from the Eastern Sierra!
