Fall Foliage Chase is On in Bishop, CA

Published on: October 06, 2012

There’s a hint of fall color in Inyo County. Head for Bishop, which celebrates the season with an annual Fall Color Car Show with fireworks, Show & Shine, Pancake Breakfast, Cruisin’ Parade, Poker Run and the Choo Choo Swap Meet at the Tri County Fairgrounds (October 5-7, 2012,

From the Eastern Sierra city where you’ll find a Trunk or Treat celebration for kids in October and the famous Mule Days in May, there’s plenty of “eye” candy for all ages when fall foliage begins its brief, but glorious run. It’s happening right now according to Bishop Chamber of Commerce, which reports that the last week in September and first week in October are traditionally maximum viewing times for the burst of color that lights up the Owens Valley in golden yellow. Standing tall behind the valley are the eastern slopes of the Sierra mountains casting shadows in shades of blue, providing a stunning visual feast of contrasting colors.  You gotta’ see it but before you go, you might want to give a call to the Chamber of Commerce to get status reports: (888)395-2395. They also send out a visitors guide, free (donations appreciated.)
