If you’re interested in seeing autumn color on the Eastern Sierra, it’s time to hit the road.

Color is already peaking in some areas and the show should continue for the next few weeks.

The Mono County Fall Color Report tracks progress on the Eastern Sierra.

Spots that are peaking from Oct. 17-24:

Convict Lake (7,850-foot elevation)

Crowley Lake (6,781-foot elevation)

McGee Creek (8,600-foot elevation)

June Lake Loop (7,654-foot elevation)

Lundy Canyon (7,858-foot elevation)

Conway Summit (8,143-foot elevation)

Summers Meadow (7,200-foot elevation)

Twin Lakes Bridgeport (7,000-foot elevation)

Monitor Pass (8,314-foot elevation)

If you’re thinking of driving across Nevada, Nichole Andler of Great Basin National Park said the park’s high country is already peaking. Andler added that lower elevations within the park should be peaking within a few weeks. She recommended visiting the Baker Creek Trail, which she described as, “walking through a tunnel of gold.”
