Fall Color Tour
Color is usually best the last two weeks of September
and the first week or two of October.
All of the Upper Peninsula is stunning during the fall
color season. Any road winding through the U.P. will
show you trees ranging from a subtle yellow to brilliant
red. The flaming maples, oaks and other hardwoods
make a perfect backdrop for the calm waters of the
inland lakes. Fall is our tranquil period when the sounds
of the forest echo around you as humans and wildlife
alike prepare for winter. The peace and quiet of this
period are unmatched at any other time of the year. The
leaves are touched with frost, the skies are the bluest,
the evergreens the greenest, and the lakes are the
calmest as they prepare to don their covering of white.
