People go north around here to ‘leaf peek;’ to drive and wander while enjoying the fall colors that are usually stupendous in northern Michigan each year.
This year the color is a bit muted, a bit late, sometimes not there at all. Everyone has a theory about why that is.
Maybe it’s the lack of rain earlier in the year. Or the above normal temperatures.
Maybe it’s because we haven’t had a frost yet.
Maybe it’s all of that and more.
For me, heading up north is usually about the Lake, and last week was no exception. But we did spend one day wandering the interior of the peninsula, looking for color where we could find it.
If you look you’ll see it’s there. Sometimes brilliant…
..sometimes more demure.
But it’s definitely there.
I hope you have the opportunity to get out and enjoy whatever’s around you too. Take a wander and share what you find with us!
Around here it won’t be long until winter descends. We need to make the best of these warmer temperatures while we still can!
