El Dorado Hills, CA - As this is a rather slow time of the year and new inventory on the market is low, I thought I would touch on some of the other "bests" for our Sierra Foothills area. I use to think of myself as a summer person because I love warm weather and clear sunny skies which is typical here in the foothills. I still love summer here, even though it can be too warm at times (106 on the hottest days) throughout the Sacramento Valley. I have, however, come to the conclusion that fall is "the best" season here. We still enjoy clear sunny skies and daytime temperatures in the 70's and low 80's, but there is a definite beauty in the hills this time of year. Our climate allows us trees that have amazing fall color, turning beautiful shades of red, orange, and yellow that stand out against the golden color of the hills and the deep greens of the native oaks. With the hottest days of summer over, our landscape plants are rejuvenated and take on flush of growth that look beautiful as well. Here is a shot taken from the Highland View neighborhood overlooking parts of El Dorado Hills with Folsom Lake in the background. The lake is usually low this time of year but unusually so this year due to the construction of a new spillway near the dam.
