Fall weather is upon us!
Sault Ste. Marie is still very green, but it is starting to yellow a little more. The very tips of the trees have begun to get a red hue.
Point Iroquois Lighthouse area is the same as the Soo, but they are starting to see more full-blown reds.
Due to a power outage in the area, we were unable to contact the Tahquamenon Falls State Park but the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, north of the park, was very helpful. The leaves are a turning red and burgundy at Whitefish Point. They were also able to tell us that the trees are a little greener 10 miles south of them in Paradise on the way to the waterfalls.

The fall weather finally hit us last night as the temps dipped into the low fifties. We should start seeing more colors soon. We are seeing the green leaves begin to change into a pale yellow from Sault Ste. Marie to Tahquamenon Falls. At the current time, the northeastern Upper Peninsula is less than 5% color saturation.
