On the last day of our trip we decided we would finally venture up the road right by our campground, to Rock Creek to peep some leaves and grab lunch before driving back to LA.
Upper Rock Creek Rd. is the highest road in California. On this day they were doing some repaving, closing it down to only one-lane, so we had to wait for a pilot car/truck to guide us up. During the drive we started to see why CaliforniaFallColor had it listed as “GO NOW” status, with lots of gorgeous groves of aspens.
