Autumn color is just past its peak in south central Wisconsin around the Beaver Dam area in Dodge County. There is also still time for great autumn camping at one of the Dodge County Parks, including Ledge, Dirge, Astico or Harnischfeger. Fishing on Beaver Dam Lake or any of the area lakes, is terrific this time of year.

PEAK COLOR has passed but we still have many backroad valleys that are resplendent with oaks displaying beautiful burnt oranges, dark reds and burnished browns! Temps are in the 50s. Skies are blue. The views along the Wisconsin Great River Road this year are phenomenal. Lodging is plentiful! Drive the back roads of the County and you won't be disappointed with the remaining fall color and 19th century barns and farmsteads blended into the hillsides. Along the Wisconsin Great River Road the Mississippi River backwaters is a wonderful spot for a photo opp. Fall bird migration is underway and we have ducks and tundra swans through November until the backwaters freeze. Buena Vista Park is the largest natural balcony overlooking the Mississippi River and is a local city park in Alma, Wisconsin. Don't miss this opportunity to experience late fall overlooking the Upper Mississippi River Valley and Lock & Dam #4, located right in Alma. http://www.almawisconsin.com

This is it folks. We are at PEAK and almost past! There is still some color. Fall is here on the Great River Road, U.S. Highway 35 and Mississippi River region. County C to Soldiers Grove, WI is all bold yellow, rust, burgundy and a little orange. Highway 27 is the ridge road and well worth the trip to tour in either direction. Then there is Highway 171 through the orchards. The harvest has started. There is a gold tone & reds on the maple trees of the ridges. Hop in the car, jump on your bike, head our way! Early apples are ready and available. Boating on the Mississippi is getting more exciting and birds are "flocking" for their migration. The ducks are arriving and white pelicans are coming this way. The Kickapoo River and the Wisconsin Rivers are both great for canoeing and we see more and more bikes and motorcycles. Everyone wants to see the "West Coast of Wisconsin" and celebrate Fall-2014. Don't wait too long. www.visitferryville.com
