Fall colors (or false colors) in Sonoma, CA

Last weekend I drove all the way up to Sonoma with friends hoping to see Fall colors. After doing a lot of research on the best place to view Fall colors in California, I settled on Annadel State Park in Sonoma county. Man...were we in for a disappointment.

Upong reaching Annadel SP, we realized that all the trees were still green and showed no signs of changing color. It had rained a week ago and the ground was still moist. What were we thinking? If you want to see Fall colors in CA, you should just do it in your neighborhood park. Most of the trees here don't change color.

Anyway, we did a 4-5 mile loop hike to Lake Ilsanjo in Annadel. The only highlight was a small snake that crossed our path.

Next time, we'll just go to New England or Oregon or Seattle.
