Plumas National Forest - California

Spanning over one million acres in the Sierra Nevada mountain range, the forest has been apart of the Forest Service for more than a hundred years.  Dedicated to the preservation of the mountain landscape and the wildlife native to the area, the forest was established by President Theodore Roosevelt, the Pioneer President. 

With the first bits of snow settling in on the higher points throughout the range, the lower elevations still held onto the last of the autumn season with golden leaves slowly drifting down to the damp ground below.
