Here are a few more photographs of the exceptional Fall Color in Grass Valley.  The tree at the front of Hennessy School is putting on an amazing show, and providing visitors entering downtown Grass Valley from the freeway with a very colorful welcome.  Meanwhile, driving along Race Street from Memorial Park to South Auburn one is treated with an explosion of fall color in the treetops.

Race Street Color Peaking

 

Well last week i thought we had seen the best of the fall color on Race Street in Grass Valley, but I was wrong.  Again these colors were augmented by the late afternoon sun.  However, these are likely to be the best days for peak color in this area of Grass Valley as some of the trees that were previously showing color are now shedding their leaves.

Last night the sun was low on the horizon lighting up all of the fall color in Grass Valley like fiery lanterns.   Here’s a photograph from Memorial Park where the fall color is almost peaking at the moment.  In the park itself there are a good number of reds and oranges, while on the backside of the park adjoining Race Street the trees are primarily showing gold.

Memorial Park Fall Color, Grass Valley

I often see articles proclaiming that Grass Valley and Nevada City have some of the best fall color west of the Rocky Mountains and walking through Memorial Park today I can see why people believe that.  The curving road that runs from the park entrance to the tennis courts has trees running along the right hand side and every year these trees put on a spectacular show, as evidenced by the photograph.

Down the road at Hennessy School on South Auburn the tree at the front of the school is putting on its annual show as it changes to a fall red.  

And trees are changing color all the way up South Auburn from downtown Grass Valley to the Ford dealership.
