I often hear my friends from the east coast say "I think I would miss fall too much," regarding moving west. Or even my friends who are out here already say that they do miss fall. This always confuses me, because there is certainly an autumn here in Northern California. It's true, many of the landscapes are dominated by evergreens or other trees that don't turn. But there are certainly pockets of hardwoods that change color in a brilliant display, you simply have to know where to look. My favorite place for fall in the Bay Area is Uvas Canyon, about a half hour outside of San Jose. Here is a piece from my most recent trek to Uvas Canyon. On this visit, my eye was particularly drawn to the forest floor, especially the ways in which the leaves and streams interacted with one another other. Shown here is the foot of Granuja Falls, and a lone leaf that has been left behind by his comrades.

Hope you enjoy!

A nice thought behind the shot, Matt. That single leaf almost appears to have decided to join his "comrades"...suspended in space as he/she makes the dive towards the pool. Well done.

lovely shot Matt! I haven't been to Uvas Canyon before. How much hike is required to reach to the falls?

Hey Matt,

Very cool shot. Yeah, I hear the same gripes by certain people, but I agree, we have a great fall season here, one just has to look for it.

Hey folks! Glad you all seem to like it! pramitmanna: the hike is really not bad at all. The Waterfall Loop is only probably 2 miles round trip, and not very strenuous and has at least four nice waterfalls. This is the first one, requiring virtually no walk at all. I recommend you go as soon as possible, while the colors are still good. They might hit peak in a week or so. In the fall, there has not been enough rain to keep the waterfalls going at a good flow for long, so you have to go right after a rainfall. I think there might be some brief showers rolling through in about a week (better than nothing), and right after those might be the best time to go to see both fall colors and waterfalls.
