California isn't known for its fall foliage, but if you know where to look, you can find it. These pictures were taken off US 395 at Conway Summit, between the towns of Lee Vining and Bridgeport.

I agree. #1 is a wall hanger but the others are darn good too.

I agree with the others that number 1 is the most striking. The last one might be just as eye-popping if you darkened it just a bit.

Thanks everyone for the feedback. Kozlok, I think you're right, I used curves to darken the last one a little bit and I think it's an improvement, thanks.
