We do have fall in southern California! It's about 4,000 - 7,000 feet in elevation. That's what I did today...drove up the Mt. Baldy road until I was immersed in yellow! Wow! What a nice surprise! I took at least a gazillion photos...wish I could post them all! But, here is a table and bench in a nice campground. My dog and I were the only visitors at the time...Very nice!
