Fall Color Tours

When Northeastern Michigan changes color in autumn, the hillsides and meadows shed their forest greens and are ablaze in spectacular bronze, gold, orange and red.  The aroma of decaying leaves; mingle with the cool breezes swept down from the north, and bring an end to the warm Indian summer days.

Hunter’s head to the forest in search of upland game and water foul. Wildlife begins preparing for winter. Chipmunks and squirrels are busy putting up their food supplies for winter.  Ducks and geese begin migrating south for the winter.

The unpredictable aurora borealis may also provide you with a wonderful evening display of dancing lights that grow bolder at this time of the year. The fall harvest is in full swing, roadside
farm markets offer a large variety of fruit and vegetables. 

A driving tour through Northeastern Michigan will provide you with a memorable experience.  Don’t forget to bring your camera.  The wonderful fall colors provide a beautiful backdrop for photographing the Upper Peninsula’s beautiful lakes, waterfalls, and lighthouses.
