PICTURES: We are obsessed with leaf peeping season

Forget cherry blossom season leaf peeping season is now underway in Mammoth Lakes, painting the natural wonders of the Eastern Sierra gold, crimson and orange.


Just a 45-minute drive from Los Angeles, on the edge of the earth’s largest volcanic calderas, pretty autumn leaves isn’t the only thing Mammoth Lakes has going for it.

Think granite domes, craters, fissures, lava tubes, symmetrical columns of basalt, saline lakes, outcroppings of white quartz and pure black obsidian, warm creeks and natural hot springs pools.

Just in case that’s not enough to make you pack your bags immediately, here are some super Insta-worthy pictures of leaf peeping season.
