For anybody looking forward to going up north along the north shore and inland for the fall colors, the time is now and into the next two weeks according to reports for the State Parks in the area. These include Gooseberry Falls State Park, Split Rock Lighthouse State Park, Tettegouche State Park, George Crosby Manitou State Park, Temperance River State Park,Cascade River State Park, Judge CR Magney State Park, and Grand Portage State Park.
Colors are changing incredibly quickly along the maple ridges and inland and for those on Hwy 61 you will see the beginnings of color. Maple colors will be at peak within the next week in most, but not all places. The length of peak will depend upon wind and weather but we should have birch and aspen second peak colors beginning in a week to 10 days. So if you get a chance, take that trip, it will be a beautiful ride for you and your family. Here are some pics from past fall colors of that area.
