Fall Days

Hunting for fall color. Photos by Howard Meyerson

It’s Autumn now, the color days. And the woods are becoming beautiful, a riot of color. The transformation has been slow this year, delayed by warm days and nights in October. Those were ideal conditions for hiking, biking and canoeing, but southern Michigan woods were often drab palettes of green and brown with only hints of color.

Last week, that began to change in earnest. I found these colorful trees while taking a drive in the country looking for color that continued to be spotty. A trip to Fisk Knob, the highest point in county, left me wanting. But this country road scene not far beyond inspired me to pull over. Color prognosticators say the peak color season in southwest Michigan will continue into mid-November.

It’s time to hit the road and enjoy.
