We currently have very little fall color. The weather is beginning to cool and we can usually expect to see it start to turn in early to mid-September. When looking for fall color, we highly recommend the view from the ferry between Bayfield and Madeline Island which highlights the entire Bayfield Peninsula and provides spectacular views of the Apostle Islands. The harvest is just beginning at our apple orchards. Check out what we have available at our Berry and Orchard Report, updated twice weekly: www.bayfield.org/orchards For more information, visit www.bayfield.org/applefestival Or follow on Facebook for regular updates: www.facebook.com/Bayfield.Apple.Festival www.bayfield.org/applefestival

We're experiencing a late summer surge in steamy hot weather in south central Wisconsin. Temperatures will be peaking in the mid 80s through the first week of school and leading into the Labor Day Holiday weekend. Attend the ceremony for the return of the Nation of Patriots Ride on Saturday, September 5th to Hogz & Honeez in Beaver Dam. The ride transports one American Flag by passing it from one group of Harley riders to another from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend so that it travels through all 48 of the lower United States. The ride returns with a parade of state flags and the one American Flag at 1:00 pm with the ceremony at 2:00 pm. While the trees aren't turning color yet, lots of vegetables and fruit are being harvested locally, including the heirloom pepper known commercially as the Beaver Dam Pepper. On Saturday, September 12th visit the Park Village Shopping Center for the annual Beaver Dam Pepper Festival. There'll be live entertainment, food and beverages, including recipes using the Beaver Dam Pepper, the Pepper Palooza Sidewalk Sale and special in store deals at the center's Piggly Wiggly. And you can purchase fresh peppers and Beaver Dam Pepper seeds - watch out, they have a bite! The event is free. Meanwhile this is a great time of year for recreational boating, jet skiing, fishing, canoeing and kayaking on Beaver Dam Lake and other area lakes. With over 6,700 acres, 7 public boat landings and 4 city or county parks, Beaver Dam Lake is a great spot for a weekend visit.

The views along the Wisconsin Great River Road this year are expected to be phenomenal. Lodging is plentiful! Drive the back roads of the County and you won't be disappointed with the 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 op. Fall bird migration will soon be 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

Fall is just starting on the Great River Road, U.S. Highway 35 and Mississippi River region. County C to Soldiers Grove, WI is still pretty green. Sumak's are turning along the roadsides. 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 very light gold tone & red tinge 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. www.visitferryville.com
