Did you know there is a place in Southern California where fall leaves change color, a cool breeze ushers in October and picturesque forests, mountains and meadows call your name?  Located just about an hour or two outside the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, Lake Arrowhead offers chilly outdoor temperatures and provide the perfect backdrop to celebrate autumn. California live oak and black oak tree shed yellow, orange and red leaves, hearkening to resort locales much further east than the San Bernardino Mountains. This fall, instead of planning a long trip to the east coast, plan to celebrate the season by heading to the Lake Arrowhead area, where there is much fall- to-do-in October:
