"Yosemite is not known for having spectacular fall colors because most of the trees are evergreen. Still, big-leaf maples, black oaks, Pacific dogwoods and other deciduous trees tend to be showy around mid-October." Yosemite National Park website
The park's fall foliage may not be as arresting as that of a Vermont country lane, but its subtle change of color enhances Yosemite's natural beauty.
