Right now, there is a lot of color a little higher up too. My family went hiking today in the large meadow behind our house, which is at about 4,000 feet.

The colors of the oaks is absolutely awesome right now. Contrasted against the green conifers and gold grass, it was a gorgeous display of color.

Of course, there were a few other things worth looking at:

Fantastic shots, Bubba. Thanks for sharing. I wish I had that in my back yard

Thanks I really appreciate it. It is nice to have a wilderness at our back door. I am currently working on a route to the top of Mount Eddy that begins on my patio. It is shaping up to be a nifty trip thus far. If you ever head up this way, please feel free to stop and stay awhile. We have a guest cottage and love getting visitors (of which we actually get very few!). I have actually thought about trying to host a Summitpost BBQ or something, but I have never really done anything about it.

I might just take you up on that. At least once or twice a year, we pass through on our way to Ashland and Grants Pass to visit relatives. Thanks!

BTW, Bubba, wondering if you could identify a peak for me to your north, near the CA/OR border. It is as you approach the border, and it is a pinnacle/dome off to the NE of the highway, off maybe 5-10 miles seemingly). Any idea? Tried looking for it on google maps but to no avail

Not knowing specifically which peak you are seeing, my first guess is that it is Pilot Rock:

It is a nifty climb right off of the PCT in the newly created Soda Mountain Wilderness. If that is not it, let me know and I will suggest some others. Based on what you described though, I suspect this is what you are seeing.

Seriously though, feel free to stop and stay. We like having guests and we have lots of great trails right out our door.

That's it! Thanks! Very distinct and sticks out. Looks like it would be fun to check out. I will PM when I'm back in the area. Thanks again!

This should obviously go up in the Oregon forum, but since Pilot Rock was the subject of some drift in this thread I reckon I might as well put the picture up here. The recent storm left a nice mantle of snow on the higher areas above the Klamath River:
