Approaching Peak Fall Color in the Northland

Four days can make a big change in the fall color scheme.  The yellows are coming out now and some reds are fading.  These trees were scarcely noticeable on Tuesday afternoon but look now on Saturday.  This is between Hinckley. MN and Danbury, WI.

Farther East, between Danbury and Minong, these colors blossomed on Webb Lake.  Even the geese are admiring them.

And yet this nearby cluster of red that was a highlight on Tuesday is now faded from notice.  (The picture is from Tuesday.)

Our own maple tree on St Croix Flowage is at peak.

This stretch of South Shore Drive on the Eau Claire chain of lakes is a favorite of ours.  The view changes daily, so it's worth repeat visits.

Here are both sides of the road.

And if you are in the area near Drummond, this Pigeon Lake loop north of county N near U.S. 63 can be amazing around October 1 of any year.
