Fall Color Update – October 12, 2016

Now is the time to view the fall color show in the Western U.P. Fall color is generally at peak with some past peak areas in the interior and still some early season color near the Lake Superior shoreline.

Enough peak color should hold through the week to make this weekend – October 15 & 16 – another great fall color tour weekend. Enjoy the show.

The Copper Peak Ski Jump and Adventure Ride in the Western U.P. is operating 7 days a week now through October 23. Take the ski lift and elevator to the top of the Copper Peak Ski Jump for some of the best (and exhilarating) views of rugged Western U.P. and Lake Superior.

You can also treat yourself to fall chairlift rides starting this weekend at the Porcupine Mountains Ski Area. They will be running the lifts Saturday and Sunday from noon to 7pm. The Fall Color Chair Lift Rides at the Porcupine Mountains Ski Area will be operating through the first three weekends of October – Sept. 17-18, 24-25 and Oct. 1-2, 8-9 and 15-16.

Fall color update:

Not a lot of color right now. This shot was taken 9/27 at Lake of the Clouds. There are some pockets where there is more color. Maybe 25% fall color with pockets as much as 40%. Too foggy today to get a shot of Lake of the Clouds.
