Fall Color Update – September 29, 2022

The 2022 Fall Color Show is happening this weekend in the Western U.P.! Peak color is emerging along the interior routes of the Western U.P. and this weekend should be a good one for those ready to get out and see the fall color. The best peak fall color should be in the high country around Lake Gogebic and along the interior routes of the Lake Michigamme west of Marquette. The color is not a far along on the highway routes in the Eastern U.P. The weather, however, looks great for an early season color tour of the scenic beauty of the Eastern U.P. Color will be peaking all over the Upper Peninsula this coming weekend and into next weekend. Color should be close to peak next week and next weekend at Lake of the Clouds and other areas closer to Lake Superior.

The early color is out in Northern Lower Michigan. The peak color is a week to two weeks away and even three weeks in areas closer to Lake Michigan. Great weather this weekend, so an early fall color tour will be well worth the trip.

FROM Tahquamenon Falls Riverboat Tours & the Famous Toonerville Trolley --> Hello everyone and happy September 10th. The fall colors are getting started on the river. Most of the color we have right now is from the beautiful red maple trees. We have 10 trips left on our schedule for the season with the last trip being October 1st. Our last 2 Saturdays (September 24th and October 1st) are nearly full so get reserved soon if you want to join us for one of those trips. The Monday and Wednesday trips all have lots of room yet. Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the cool crisp weather of fall. The trip goes rain or shine. We hope to see you all very soon. #newberry #fallcolorphotosHello everyone and happy September 10th. The fall colors are getting started on the river.
