The quest for color: Dripping gold in the High Sierras

The leaves are turning golden amber, the fall explosion of spectacular color in California's High Sierras. A group of us took off to find the legendary pot of gold, err pile of gold, err golden leaves? Yeah that was it.

Here's a taste.

I used to take my Jeep up Old Gold Camp Road every chance I got in the fall to see the pretty colors, can't wait to ride the bike up there next fall.
