Fall Color Update – September 15, 2017

We are seeing some significant color in the woods of the interior Western U.P. If you’d like to get a sneak peak of the Fall Color Show of 2017, you might want to take a trip to Western U.P. this weekend. It looks like peak color in the interior of the Western U.P. may be here for the weekend of September 23 & 24. The peak for Lake of the Clouds will likely be a little later, perhaps the weekend of September 30 & October 1.

We are starting to see confirmations that the fall color season will be earlier this year. Last year color in the U.P. was 10 to 14 days later than the historic norm. We think the fall color will likely be closer to the historic norm this year, if not a little early.

We will watch and see what happens.
