We’ve been on quite a few hikes this week and the colors are definitely changing. There is still a band of color inland a few miles, on the mountain and hillsides. The green that has been prevalent on either side of the band is starting to become more yellow with orange popping through.
The weather was rainy with cooler temps at the beginning of the week, but warmed up Thursday to the mid-60s and the outlook is that it will stay mild through the weekend.
Along the shore, colors are at about 25% peak, inland roughly 50-60% and up the Gunflint, about 25% peak. Below are some images that were taken Wednesday and Thursday on a few hikes.
