It's time to fearlessly seek out the peak fall color in the Porcupine Mountains. Here's a recent view of the fall color at Lake of the Clouds via Michigan Scenery... #porcupinemountains #westernup #fallcolorphotos"October Dawn", Lake of the Clouds, Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park, October 9, 2021. As my friends and I headed for the platform on this day, lightning was flashing overhead, lighting up the early morning darkness. A big storm seemed imminent. Wiser souls would have left! Astonishingly, the storm stayed offshore and allowed for a very colorful dawn. www.michiganscenery.com. #puremichigan #UPtravel ... See MoreSee Less

Fall Color Update via Doppler 9&10 Weather Team --> Updated: 10/7/2021 (Updated Weekly)
Peak Color is already here for some areas! This has been a very interesting year with strong pockets of red and orange in a sea of green the last few weeks. But last week’s chilly nights made notable changes for specific areas around Cadillac, Clare, and Grayling. While Cadillac may not be peaking right now, there are large areas within 10 miles of the downtown area that are. That is why we are showing those areas as Peak, as it will come sooner than later... #fallcolorreports #cadillacmichigan #benziecounty #traversecity #petoskey #gaylord #grayling #westernup #marquette #munising #newberry - www.9and10news.com/2021/09/16/fall-color-change-2021/?fbclid=IwAR0YonBAAJd_IlfbxiYVhHIev84q-9jPwd... ...

#fallcolorphotos #porcupinemountains #westernupGood morning everyone! October 7, 2021. The view of Lake of the Clouds this year was spectacular as the colors changed daily! If God could have painted some heaven on earth, He did a wonderful job here in the midst of the Porcupine Mountains here in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan! Standing there upon the rocky top viewing the vista across the horizon makes one's heart pound with all the accolades this area deserves! All who have visited this area know the feeling that overwhelms a person as they reach the overlook and scan across the vista which then fills their mind with everlasting memories! Even without a camera, the mind is etched with the scene to take home reviewing at one's leisure. To all of you who are not from this state, this area is a must-see! The drive is scenic all the way to this photo! It is worth many stops taking one's time to take in all of the scenes afforded to you. Enjoy the view and God's Blessings upon each one of you! ...
