As promised, today I begin a series of photos of the beautiful Upper Peninsula (U.P.)
of Michigan's autumn.
We took several trips out in the woods to try and capture the changing colors, as well as visiting
several waterfalls this autumn too.
We had two huge wind storms with rain,so the colors didn't last as long as I had hoped,
but I got out there as much as possible to bring you photos.
I am starting with the latest ones, and will work backward on my blogposts,
as I knew you wanted them asap.
I love woods' roads when they are full of color:
In certain areas, all the trees are golden. In other areas, you get the reds and oranges mixed in:
A river with some floating leaves on it:
I love being near water when our leaves change, because you get them reflected.
This boulder with the caught leaves in them next to swirling river water caught my eye:
A little creek just full of fallen leaves on its sides and banks:
Slate River Falls as the afternoon sun was setting:
This is a well-known spot called "Big Erik's bridge" after a huge fella who was a logger back in the day.
In the spring, many trout fishermen and fisherwomen come here to catch trout.
The falls are pretty year-round.
They were very low due to less rain the day we went here:
Another shot of them through fall foliage:
A creek, a boulder and the glorious color:
While hiking, this little chipmunk hopped up on this old tree stump, and was lit by the sun.
I just had to snap a photo of him!:
There will be more autumn photos to come...
I'm just getting started!!
Hope your leaves are still up, ours have all blown off now and they are saying the "S" word for this coming week....
I am NOT ready!!!!
