Western U.P. Fall Color Update – October 17, 2017

Fall Color Update – October 17, 2017

Western U.P. Fall Color UpdateHurry up if you are planning a fall color tour of the Western Upper Peninsula. This will probably be the last weekend – October 21 & 22 – to see the fall color show in the U.P. Inland routes are likely to be a little past peak and routes near the shoreline of Lake Superior and Lake Michigan will still have some pretty good peak color.

Check out the instagram feed of our Bond Falls page for updated photos.

Check out the instagram feed of our Lake of the Clouds page for updated photos.

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.

Finally, looks like a PEAK COLOR weekend for the Western U.P. of Michigan... You should be able to find good color along many sections of inland routes... There is less color on the shore line routes near Lake Superior... The fall color along those routes should be peaking next week... #fallcolorphotos #westernupGet up here this weekend to see our fall colors!!! These were taken today on our trip back from Ironwood!!!
In the comments, look at the video I took..... so gorgeous ❤️❤️

It looks like THIS WEEKEND - October 7 & 8 - will be the first weekend of 2017 where you will be able to find some good peak color in the Western U.P. The routes in the interior of the Western U.P. will likely have the best peak color. The fall color is getting much stronger at Lake of the Clouds and along the Lake Superior shore. Look for good peak color along those routes starting sometime next week... #fallcolorphotos #porcupinemountains #westernupFall color update:
Here are the shots from Lake of the Clouds today. Color is progressing, not at peak yet. The first 4 photos are from Lake of the Clouds. I'm also attaching a couple of pics (the last 2 photos) from Summit Peak yesterday. There is more color at Summit Peak. #midnr #miparks #puremichigan #fallcolor #lakeoftheclouds
