Fall foliage in pictures, again
From the UP to the Indiana and Ohio borders, mother nature is wowing Michiganders with her display of Fall color. So, once again, here is some Autumnal splendor for you to enjoy from around the state.
Lake of the Clouds in the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park can be viewed from a nearby peak. Michigan in Pictures features a photo from this vantage point and writes:
lake of the clouds, again, photo by Apparat-chik.Later in the post, michpics explains that
(t)he park was formed in 1945 to protect the last large stand of old-growth forest remaining in Michigan. The park has an excellent network of backcountry trails for hiking, backpacking and cross-country skiing, rustic trailside cabins, campgrounds, swimming and boating areas.In addition to the photos, there are lots of links to information, including one to the 4,600 mile long North Country Trail that traverses the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park.
Jolli Lodge Photo Blog features some fall color in Northwest Lower Michigan. Greg, whose parents and grandparents were founders of this cottage resort, writes:
Yes, this was a 4 stall stable when my folks first started. Maybe some of you old time Jolli-Lodgers would remember Sadie, the donkey? My grandmother, Grace, brought her from their farm on Hilltop Rd. in Plymouth. My father has a special place in his heart due to the numerous trips down the road to chase after the escapee! The donkey that is!He also features one of the remaining Martin houses wrapped in Fall color.
The Adventures of a Brit Abroad shows us one of his "Krappy Kamera Club" photos that is, in spite of the equipment used, gorgeous! Matt lives in Ypsilanti and writes about this photo:
The current assignment for our local Krappy Kamera Club is "what does fall mean to you?" Initially I wanted to steer clear of all the usual cliches - leaves changing colour, pumpkins, halloween, cider and donuts - but when you're out and about shooting in Michigan at this time of year it's hard to avoid.NOISE Photoblog reminds us to
Enjoy it while you can. The weather will turn colder later in the week and may even snow.Isn't Jeremy cheery!
