The weather is beginning to cool and the color has turned. Because of our proximity to Lake Superior, the colors happen a little later than inland locations. 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 in full swing at our apple orchards. Check out what we have available at our Berry and Orchard Report, updated twice weekly: www.bayfield.org/orchards www.bayfield.org

Now is the time to make your trip to the Northern Highland American Legion State Forest where biking, hiking and fishing are just a few of the autumn activities to be enjoyed. Stop by the Chamber to discover the best routes for biking and hiking during these fall days! Still good to get out and enjoy nature!

While there is still some good color to see, and areas still within peak - most of the County is past peak and leaves are muted in color and turning to brown. Winds late in the week started to bring more leaves to the ground. If you are out touring, a good drive is the Rustic Road in the Blue Hills in the northwest area of the County. A drive up County Road F from the southwest portion of the corner to Birchwood is also excellent. Or try a hike on the Blue Hills Trail or the River View trail in Ladysmith. www.ruskcountywi.com

The Marshfield area's fall color season generally begins in mid-September and ends in early to mid-October. However, this year the peak seems to be a little slower in coming . . . We're still waiting for the fall colors to peak! It’s easy to plan a fall color getaway in Marshfield because of our beautiful walking, hiking, and biking paths. Visit the many miles of trails in Marshfield including the University of Wisconsin Wood County Arboretum, Wildwood Park and Zoo, McMillan Marsh, or Hamus Nature Park to view the beautiful oranges, reds, golds, and greens of fall. Suggested fall color drives are on highway 10 from the Steven's Point to the East or Highway 13 from the North. We will be welcoming two Kodiak Bear Cubs on Oct. 24th to our Wildwood Zoo. We will be one of only a few zoo's in the U.S. to feature Kodiak bears as they rarely leave Alaska.

We're getting one more weather reprieve the first week of November! The weather is forecast to be mostly sunny with temperatures in the 60s and we might even hit 70 degrees one more time this year before the snow flies! The autumn foliage in south central Wisconsin is past its peak, but there are still patches trees and sections of forest with vibrant colors. Avid sportsmen can still canoe and kayak on Beaver Dam Lake and other area lakes. With over 6,700 acres, 7 public boat landings and 5 city or county parks, Beaver Dam Lake is a great spot for a weekend visit.

The views along the Wisconsin Great River Road have been phenomenal this year, but recent rain and wind has taken most of the early color. Just beginning are the oaks, with the different facing directions of our bluffs and diversity of trees we will have extended Fall color well into November. Drive the back roads of the County and you won't be disappointed with the fall color and 19th century barns & farmsteads blended into the valleys and hillsides. Along the Wisconsin Great River Road the Mississippi River backwaters are 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

We are just past the peak!! Beautiful, sunny days here in Crawford County and the colors are best on Hwy 35, The Great River Road National Scenic Byway. The strong winds of a week ago blew many leaves from trees on the hill tops but it is still fabulous color on inland highways and along the Mississippi River. Sumak's have turned red 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 is well underway. A bright gold tone & strong reds can be seen on the maple trees of the ridges. The apple orchards have a great variety of apples for sale and other produce, sweet treats too. Hop in the car, jump on your bike, head our way! Apples are ready and available. Boating on the Mississippi is getting more exciting and birds are "flocking" for their migration. The ducks have finally arrived 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. Enjoy your trip. www.visitferryville.com

Waxing poetic in November... "How silently they tumble down And come to rest upon the ground To lay a carpet, rich and rare, Beneath the trees without a care, Content to sleep, their work well done, Colors gleaming in the sun. At other times, they wildly fly Until they nearly reach the sky. Twisting, turning through the air Till all the trees stand stark and bare. Exhausted, drop to earth below To wait, like children, for the snow." - Elsie N. Brady, Leaves https://www.facebook.com/MiddletonWI www.visitmiddleton.com

Pepin County is remote and beautiful which suits adventurers of all kinds. Hwy 35 was voted the "prettiest drive” in the United States offering stunning views of tree-clad limestone bluffs, Lake Pepin with soaring eagles. The best road trips are on county highways and our unpaved windy township roads with unique names like Goat Back Road, Bear Pen Road, Back Valley Road and Beaver Slide Road. Fall is an excellent time to take a relaxing canoe trip on the Chippewa River as you paddle past the trees bursting with different shades of vibrant colors.

When traveling through Southwest Wisconsin, while many of the trees have already dropped their leaves, there are still some that are just gorgeous - and how fun to travel our back roads, round a corner and see the last of the colors! Farmers are working at their fall harvests. It's a great time to see our area - Stonefield Historic Site in Cassville is a "must-see". A stop at the Jamison and Mining Museums in Platteville is well worth your time! Grant County has a bounty of outdoor recreational opportunities waiting for you - from biking, hiking, fishing, kayaking, canoeing to camping! Grant County has 57 miles of the Great River Road where views of the mighty Mississippi are breathtaking! It's a great time to do some birdwatching, especially along the Mississippi.
