Color Tour

The color in northern Michigan is near or at the peak, depending on where you are looking.  We have taken a couple drives the last couple days to see the color and were not disappointed.  Along the way we stopped at a scenic spot in the Florey’s Ranch Estates, the Mayfield Pond Park in Mayfield, Brown Bridge Pond, now simply the Boardman River, and the […]

Color, Reflections, and Things that Fly

Finally got back on the lake this morning after a long absence.  The lake was very flat making for some interesting reflections and easy kayaking. I’ll start with color.  Yes, the color is starting to change up here.  Not very widespread, yet, but you can see it coming. Although the sky was quite overcast when we started, the sun did finally come out, leaving some […]

More Fall Color

We were at OCC a week and a half ago.  Although the color is fading, there was still some nice color.  Here are some photos taken in the colony.                     I hope you are enjoying this fall season. Mark

Fall Color Tour

We were up north a week ago and drove down a lot of dirt roads looking at the beautiful fall color. These images came from the area inside the triangle of Interlochen, Thompsonville, and Beulah. The color was fairly widespread and what we saw was beautiful.

Fall Color Around Leelanau Peninsula

We did manage to hit the peak color in the area this last weekend.  We did a couple hikes and got some photos to share. The first hike was in the TC Commons.  We had never walked in these woods that are so close to all the attractions in the commons and yet feels so isolated from the city.   There is a large cistern […]

Fall Colors and Fall Loons

Finally, we have decent fall color at the lake.  Got out in the kayak this morning and were not disappointed.  Although not at its peak, the color is very nice.  Here are some examples. At the south end of the lake, just to the west of Horton Creek. Point just south of OCC The  OCC Shoreline. In addition to the fall color, we three loons.  […]

High Rollaway

I think we hit the peak color in NW Michigan last weekend.  Although the color wasn’t as vivid as in some years, it was still beautiful.  We made a trip to High Rollaway to the overlook of the Manistee River.  We hiked the North Country Trail in both directions a short ways, but this is the best vantage point. There were many more great views, […]

A bit more fall color

Here in the Kalamazoo area, we are still a bit short of peak color.  I took a drive west of town Monday with my mom and saw some beautiful trees, but not the wide-spread color that is (hopefully) yet to come. However, here are some photos I took on a short walk near my house. The color is later this year than usual, so keep […]

Fall Afternoon on the Lake

Last weekend, we managed to get back out on the lake in the kayaks late one afternoon.  The color isn’t full peak, yet, but that’s coming soon.  In addition to some color, we had a real treat of watching a great blue heron catching and eating fish at the south end of the lake.  We watched as the heron caught and ate 4 fish before […]

Something to Whet your Appetite

We are starting to get some color in the north Michigan woods.  It is just a few trees here and there, nothing wide-spread, yet.  It’s coming.  It will be here soon. But, just to whet the appetite, here are some photos from last weekend’s tour through the woods. I hope to get back up there in a couple weeks and see spectacular color.  I hope […]
