The leaves continue their annual trek from branch to ground, here in the Copper Country. With all the rainfall and winds, they're blowing and landing in all sorts of places. Frederic W. Koski was busily photographing some of those fallen leaves as they lay in puddles and on the forest floor amidst the moss and raindrops. If you're looking to press your leaves between wax paper, now would be the time to get out there and collect the colorful ones before they dry up and start curling.

If you're looking for a good place to "get away from it all", then go no further than Judy Byykkonen's glimpse of heaven in the woods. The leaves that have fallen there, have made a beautiful carpet on the forest floor, which will soften your step and the surrounding colors will soothe your cares away. Now, get back to work before the boss catches you daydreaming

Ahhh yes, picking leaves as a child for a school project. Oh the memories.

Beautiful pictures! Everyone have a wonderful weekend.

Beautiful fall picture! I like all of them. I love the water droplets with the fall leaves in the second pictures. And I always love pictures of woods with the sun peeking through the top, and the carpet of leaves on the ground, most especially in fall! Thank you, Frederic, Judy, and Mary!

Oh, my gosh those pictures are great. Makes me want to leave this forsaken amarillo color and get back home.

Thanks,for the beautiful pics. I can hear the crunch as I walk thru the woods in my mind. It must be the sound of the crunching leaves under my feet I miss the most.

I liked when folks in Dollar Bay would rake their leaves onto the streets and then burned them.I recall comming down from the Airport road hill in the dark,and you could see fire along many streets,and the smoke rising up.That was so neat to see.Better then them T candles you place in white bags along sidewalks over the holidays.Then of course you had to have the garden hose ready just in case the fire got out on hand.Everyone would try to have leaves cleaned up by the time the Prankers started.We,i mean the prankers would start 2 weeks before Halloween doing pranks such as putting Volkswagons up on the Baptist Church steps,even would run 12 foot boats up the school flag pole.Folks would find there utility trailers on the school lawn upside down.Poor old Poika Polasari would have his outhouse knocked over every year,except the one when he moved it back 10 feet on us, I mean the Pranksters. It was like a Roit in the 60's that time of year. So glad I was a good kid.

Side Note; I got mail from a Prankster(who shall remain nameless) reminding me it was not a boat we,he put up the flagpole,is was a bike.

All 3 pics are nice, especially the maple leag 1. Since the red
maple leaf is 1 of Canada's symbols, does any-1 know that,
geologically speaking, the U.P. is part of Canada? The Canadian
Shield swoops down and takes in the U.P. Is any-1 who posts
here from Canada?

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Saturday, October 4, 2008 - 09:14 pm:

Not from Canada, but I have lived in Canada for quite some time.
I think Capt. Paul or Dr. Nat would be far better qualified to speak
of the geological relationship between the UP and Canada than I
would be. I have heard, though, that the UP became part of the US
and hence of Michigan, thanks to a surveying error made by
Benjamin Franklin. Looking at a map, it's pretty clear that Isle
Royale is far closer to Canada than it is to the UP...but I sure am
glad that the guy who wanted to make the wild turkey the symbol
of the US rather than the eagle would be glad that his surveying
error turned out so well.
