Western U.P. Fall Color Photos – 2017

Fall Color Update – September 21, 2017

The fall colors continue to come along in the woods of the interior Western U.P., however, it looks like peak color is still about a week away.

You should be able to find spots with very good early-season color for this weekend – September 23 & 24 – however it looks like the best “peak color weekend” is more likely to be September 30 & October 1.

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.

I'll try to get a shot from Summit Peak tomorrow. The color changes much earlier at Summit Peak. Lake of the Clouds is much slower to turn. We'll keep posting updates.

I was thinking about heading up this weekend, just somewhere in the UP, but I guess the colors won't be showing too much.
