Beautiful Video of the Fall Colors in Michigan's Upper Peninsula

Andrew Norton

I just love fall here in Michigan. In fact, I came up with a solid list of the five main reasons that it's such a favorite of mine.

  1. Cool, crisp air means sweatshirt weather.
  2. Apple picking (and eating in pie, applesauce, apple crisp, etc.)
  3. Cider season (and my favorite cider donuts from Corey Lake Orchards!)
  4. I feel like making chili, pot roast, and turkey with all the fixings
  5. Last, but not least - The Beautiful Fall Colors

Put on a sweatshirt, grab a glass of cider, and dunk a donut while you watch this beautiful video of the fall colors in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. See if you can spot the locations - Pictured Rocks, Grand Marais, Au Train, and Kingston Lake.

Fall Colors in Michigan Are Changing - Slowly

Andrew Norton

Take a look at the fall color in Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula:

I admit it. I'm still a sucker for a beautiful stream of images alongside a wonderful voice-over from Tim Allen. Fall foiliage has been slow to change here in Michigan so I am getting a peak at what might be yet to come via the Pure Michigan ad, Deep Breath.

Michigan's warm September has slowed down the onslaught of fall color we normally are experiencing at this time in the fall. I have a feeling that when the color finally changes, it's going to change fast and the fall color show will not last long.

Good Hart is looking Good!

Just Beautiful.

The past couple of cooler and rainy days have me thinking about fall. Constantine's Fall Festival is the second weekend in September with September 13th also the kickoff of the farmer's market that will run Saturday mornings this fall.

The changes that autumn brings

Andrew Norton

I really enjoyed this brief narrative that was on the back of our church bulletin yesterday. I thought I would share it here -

IN Ecclesiastes 3:1 we read, There is a . . . season for every activity under heaven (NIV). A lone dove eats beneath the feeder; close in, the grass is green and needs mowing. The trees are dripping; the sun is bright, misleading of its warmth. Beneath the fence a still blanket of pale green frost stretches. A trio of crows crosses it. It turned cold overnight; our neighbor's once green corn is now brown. A cardinal acts as if nothing miraculous were happening. This is the second night of autumn; the third day. The land gets ready for sleep.

Anxious for fall colors? Go north and enjoy!

The wonderful myriad of color will be reaching its peak on trees in portions of the U.P. in the next couple of weeks. The Mining Journal is reporting that an early hard frost is beneficial to fall color. So those of us waiting on the color to begin can always head up north for some beautiful scenery.

Bill Cook, district forester with the Michigan State University Extension forestry research station in Escanaba, said a hard frost about a week ago will likely result in brilliant colors.

“The earlier the frost comes the more sugars are trapped in the leaves and that’s what causes the brilliance and intensity of the colors,” Cook said.
