Yes, Virginia, we have fall color in California. It runs from north to south and hasn’t really hit yet here in Southern California. But up in beautiful Plumas County, things are getting chilly and beautiful.
The county’s tourism bureau has a fall color website with some wonderful photos. In case you don’t know, Plumas County is the Feather River region, north of I-80 and Lake Tahoe. Wonderful roads up there.
You’ll have to wait a bit for your San Diego day trip to fall color.
