One of the things we miss most from back East is the fall colors. So every year Akiko and I get in the car in search of changing leaves here in Southern CA.
Our first attempt was a complete bust as we visited Julian, CA the week before Halloween and everything was still pretty much green.
This week we drove 70 miles NE of Pasadena to Silverwood Lake.
It was a really nice area, beautiful weather, but only a hint of fall colors. We got some fresh air, did some hiking (had our first Bobcat sighting) and didn't spend the whole day driving, so it was worth it.
Look!! We found one!
