Fall Color Update - November, 2013

Upper Peninsula - Some late season color near the lakeshore and plenty of great waterfall and vistas to view in the Upper Peninsula even with most of the color gone. Thanks for a great 2013 color season. See you in 2014! Check out the Facebook Page for the latest photos.

Northern Lower Michigan - The windy weather may blow the remaining leaves off of the trees, however, there still is some late season color along the routes close to the lakeshore. Ski season will be starting soon so check Ski Michigan for the latest on what's happening on the slopes and trails of Northern Michigan. See you next year for a great 2014 fall color season. - Check here for the latest events.
