If you’ve ever wanted to come UP North to see the colors change in the Fall, you probably know that it can happen at different times in different years. Today’s archive shots show you just how much it can vary, starting with an aerial shot from E. Neil Harri in 2005, while he was flying over the Porkies in the Ontonagon area. Neil captured the ridge that borders the Lake of the Clouds, along with what looks like a “gully” of colors down below. So things were already changing at this point that year.

Then in 2012, Bill Haller (RIP) made a trek to the highest point in Michigan, Mount Arvon, which is in the Huron Mountains near L’Anse. Check out the bright yellow colors there that year. A different area, a different year, a different peak for the colors.

Jumping ahead just one year, to 2013, we join Frank Jezek back at the Porkies again, but with a much duller color at this point that year. I’m guessing that not too long after this shot was taken, the colors started bursting out all over there, deepening in hues.

Sad to say, I’ve never been to Mt. Arvon, so if you’re like me and are wondering more about this high point here UP North, you should enjoy today’s video from Rooftops of America, Highpointing Mount Arvon.

Top of Mt. Arvon is awesome! I swear you can see

However...there's a big fight going on...they want
to fill it with Wind Turbines....

I must have missed something at the top of Mt. Arvon. The drive both up and down was fantastic but the actual "summit" was quite anti-climatic. The walk from the parking lot was a very short stroll through the woods, ending up...in the middle of the woods.
