Fall Colors: Underbrush
Fall Colors: Underbrush

The first colors to change each autumn are the leaves of underbrush. Look to the small plants and bushes occupying the forest floor below the tree canopy, along trail edges, lake shorelines, and in ditches. The colors can be as varied and striking as tree leaves – yellow, gold, orange,  red, maroon and bronze. Just remember to direct your gaze down.

Fall Colors: Maple Season
Fall Colors: Maple Season

Colors start with a leaf, a streak of orange, or an occasional tree, isolated and red. This is the season of the maple in the valleys behind the headlands rising out of Lake Superior. You will find the best maple colors from about Split Rock Lighthouse northeast up the shore. The ridge line is one to two miles inland from Highway 61.

Geese Fly South
Geese Fly South

Canada geese migrate south because they need open water for food and as a place of refuge from predators. They fly at 40 mph, but can reach 70 mph with a good tailwind. They fly in a V formation with each bird a bit higher than the one in front. Some speculate the lead goose breaks wind and allows the others to draft. Do you know why one side of the V is longer than the other? More birds on that side.
