The Eastern Sierra Interpretive Association, in partnership with its agency partner, the Inyo National Forest, is continuing our Authors and Artists Series. This series features presentations by many of the authors and artists whose merchandise is sold in our 17 National Park Service and U.S. Forest Service visitor center and ranger station bookstores operated by ESIA.

Photographer and visual opportunist G Dan Mitchell has hiked, backpacked, skied, climbed, and photographed in the Sierra Nevada for most of his life. A couple of decades ago he became intrigued with the annual Eastern Sierra fall color show, and he has photographed aspens and other colorful foliage up and down the range ever since.

His book “California’s Fall Color: A Photographer’s Guide to Autumn in the Sierra” is a popular introduction to locating and photographing this beautiful subject. On Saturday, October 5th, he will share advice and tips from the book and from his own experience, including where and when to find great color and how to photograph it, along with many photographs of Sierra Nevada fall color.

This is a free event open to the public located in the U.S. Forest Service auditorium in Mammoth Lakes, CA. We will have G Dan Mitchell’s book for sale as well as a book signing after the presentation. We hope to see you there!
