Hi Charlie, and all photo Yoopers,

Washburn, WI challenges you for better color than this. Having been up to the up many times during the color days, this should be an easy one for you.

Thanks for the shot, Ken. Wasn't it you who provided a shot from Brockway last Fall?? Perhaps the epicenter of Autumn Colors slid a little south this year.

If for nothing else, just to live up in the U.P. to wait for the Fall Colors to turn...It would be worth it !!

Hey Charlie,

Actually I took this photograph 2 years ago at Brockway. In fact I sent in another photograph of one the lakes, I think it might of been Lake Bailey from the same trip. My family and I hit the U.P. at the height of colors that year. I should send in the photos I took at the Porcupine Mountains that year. It was the last week of September. We were planning go back up to the U.P. this year, even took the same week off. Unfortunately we didn't make it. But by all the comments I've seen the colors are late this year.

I have to admit that Ken's photo is very beautiful but after just spending the weekend in the UP, nothing can compare. The ride from Hancock out to Bootjack was incredible, something I have taken for granted for way too long. The only bad part was by the time I left to go back to Hancock, there was quite a little snow storm! I guess that's the price we sometimes have to pay for living in such a wonderful place!

Your right, the colors look great. Have you invested in a good leaf blower?

Wish that were my yard. Such beautiful colors.
