Leaf peeping in Alpine County

The most photographed cabin on Highway 88
Back east they call it leaf peeping -- enjoying and photographing fall foliage.

In October in Alpine County, CA, yellow aspens and other colorful flora are real traffic stoppers. We were told that this old cabin was photographed for the cover of a local magazine.

Drivers hell bent on their own photo ops screeched up to the roadside to capture the splendor, then jumped back in their cars and zoomed off.

A few intrepid painters, no less crazed by color, crouched on the gravelly curbside, recording the scene in a slower fashion.
