Fall Color Report: Fall color is still very good! In some areas, leaves are falling but there is still great color to be found in the woods and along the Lakeshore.
While sensible people tend to shun the waters of Lake Michigan in October, many of the folks who frequent Northern Michigan Surf on Facebook are excited because the real surfing season is in full swing!
The heart of the page are updates from the admin and others about where the waves are likely to be breaking. You can also let others know where you’ll be surfing – a great thing because surfing in the fall (or really any time there are big waves) is not something that you want to do alone. You can check out some great photos that folks have taken and share your own.
Michigan in Pictures, our daily Michigan photo blog, let’s you know that today is the birthday of Greenfiled Village (and a little thing called the electric light).
On Absolute Michigan has another cool time-lapse photography project today – this one is from Leelanau’s own Ken Scott and features Jacob’s Corn Maze on M-72. We also looked at Michigan’s Historical Marker program and Why it’s called Indian Summer.
