It is that time of year again and the tree's are starting to show color.
For updated forecast of color changes go here.
Fall Color Report

Noticed many maples turning in the north here but lack of moisture may have started that but no big chunks of color yet.

Yep, the semi-drought of the summer ("Abnormal Dryness" was the meterological term) has caused some maples to turn, and has caused lots of burn on the conifers also.

There's a few oddball maples that have turned here on the lakeshore but otherwise not much yet, early for us.

Reds and orange are showing up here. Granite Peak is starting to change. Probably about 2 weeks away from peak.

Same thing here, we are about two weeks away too.

Our small black walnut trees have changed color but I think it was more from drought stress than anything else.

I know 3weeks ago went to Minoqua but went 13 up to 70 and across wasa bit of color. Supposed to go on 2nd if not cancel sure be better then.


Keep checking maps see more popped up at the 25% level none have really hit major color yet. Soon should be though as seeing more Northeastern countys popping up on map.

I drove down 35 from Superior Sunday and saw a fair amount of color. It was pretty.
