Fall is one of my favorite seasons in Nevada City, it seems everywhere you turn you can find a pop of color. If you’ve never experienced the Gold Country fall colors here are a few posts from previous years (click here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here or here) to help inspire a visit or remind you to get outside and look around.
