Fun, easy hike through Bell Meadow to see the fall colors in the largest aspen groves of the Stanislaus National Forest. We had originally planned on heading to Chain Lakes off of Box Spring Trailhead, but road work and the realization that the road was too long caused us to change our plans mid-adventure. It worked out well for us!
A quick Saturday day hike introducing Grandma H to the Harvey Monroe Hall Natural Area surrounding Green Treble Lake. Since we didn't want to push the drive home in one day, we decided to overnight in Lee Vining with a room overlooking Lee Vining Creek and Mono Lake. Smoke from Southern Sierra fires wasn't bad enough to prevent hiking, but it did completely obscure the views. On the drive home we traveled from Virginia Lakes to Bridgeport via Dunderberg Meadow road and got some great fall color leaf-peeping in!
