Northport Barn in Late October

Photo by Tonya Cook

OCTOBER 27 – Tonya shared this photo in the very cool Overheard in Leelanau County group* yesterday morning. It’s an excellent representation of the peak color conditions around the County. It’s holding strong, so get your color fix before the only color is the white of the snow! There’s two more pics by Tonya on our Facebook page.

Color Tour … farmscape peak!

OCTOBER 25 – Here’s a great shot from Saturday of peak color at a Leelanau Christmas tree farm. While our weather has been windy & rainy, as of yesterday fall color was holding strong and will be at peak this week & weekend!

Autumn lakes reflect summer’s best dreams

OCTOBER 16 – Fall color straight-up stalled for the last couple of weeks, but is starting to assert itself, with more pockets of color to be found. Heather took this photo of Saturday on Lake Ann, just south of the Leelanau line. Follow her at Snap Happy Gal Photography on Facebook for lots more including her stunning night shots!

Color Tour … M22 autumnal shift

OCTOBER 2 – Fall color is picking up nicely around the County with reds & oranges starting to make their appearance. This photo was taken this weekend along M-22 about 3 miles south of Leland in front of the Snowbird Inn. There are spots of good color, and warm weather forecast for the week will ensure excellent color touring this weekend and likely through all of next week and weekend. See a TON more from this year and years past in Ken’s massive Color Tour slideshow.
