Newberry, Michigan Fall Color Report
Welcome to Kritter's Northcountry Campground & Cabins and our Newberry, Michigan Fall Color Report and Upper Peninsula Fall Color Report by Kathy.
9/25/17 Now showing: Fall Color!
Every season in the U.P. has its bragging rights. However, it’s nearly impossible to beat the breathtaking vistas our 7 million acres of forest offer each fall. Scarlet reds, sunny yellows, coppery oranges, coffee browns and hunter greens drench our trees with photo-snapping hues. The Cherry trees have all but lost their leaves and the poplar and birch are not far behind. The majestic White Pines have shed their summer coats and the new growth has begun to take its place. The Red Maples have the burst of purple other maples are beginning to turn. There are pops of Red's, Yellow and Orange beginning to show through. The mighty Oaks have the stems turning red, but they are the last to give up the fight before winter. The colors toward the Falls and Crisp Point Lighthouse and Lake Superior are slightly more prominent. The temperatures will rapidly dip back down to the low 60's for daytime highs and night time lows will be back to the 40's mid week of Sept. 27th. Our best guess would be by the end of the second week of October nature will be on its best color show. There is no shortage of U.P. fall fun! If you haven’t driven Whitefish Bay Scenic Byway southwest of Sault Ste. Marie, try it this year. Part of the Hiawatha National Forest, it hugs the Lake Superior shoreline. Take time to tour the Point Iroquois Light Station (open every day except Mondays until Oct. 15) and walk the beach. The rocks are as colorful as the trees.
