Fall Color Is Here

While we were out looking for the Nebagamon twine ball, yesterday, we saw lots of patches of fall color developing in the Wisconsin north woods.  We were looking for the first signs of poplar turning bright yellow to go with the red and oranges of the maples.  Good fall color requires the reds and oranges to "hang on" for a while as the poplars start to turn.

We found nice samples of maples starting to turn, like this one near a canoe launch site on the Brule River, "River of Presidents."

Along Wisconsin highway 27 there was a one very nice area close to peak color.

And the best examples of red leaves are always found as the sun gets low in the sky to light the leaves from the back as it was here along highway 77 between Minong and Danbury.

And if you are out leafing, be sure to catch a sunset on a lake.

If the rain and wind don't knock the early leaves down, next week should be outstanding.
