The wind has taken down a few leaves, but the colors are still beautiful. High lights are looking across Little Birch Lake from State Hwy 48, driving north on Cty Hwy T from Cty Hwy D, just outside of Birchwood. The colors are also looking good near Tag a Long golf course. The closer you get to State Hwy 27 as you drive north on Cty Hwy F re better the colors are. We are losing some reds, but the peach colors are coming and the yellows brighten even cloudy days. The Hayward Fall Fest is coming up September 23. www.birchwoodwi.com

This is a unique fall in that there are pockets of 50-75% color while the rest is still at 35%. This adds a 'wow' affect to driving around the area. The smell of fall is in the air and wildlife is moving around and easier to spot due to the crunch of the ground cover. Head north and soak up the abundant beauty and fresh air! Enjoy the canopy of color while driving on Rustic Road 60 in Vilas County. Cranberry Fest in Eagle River is on October 7th and 8th so make your plans to head north!

The Northern part of the county, near Hayward - it is still way more green with just a few golden or orange trees here and there. As you move towards the Southern part of the Sawyer County - the trees are changing much faster. Overall, color change in the county is at about 30%-35% and ranges from trees with no color change to a few trees at or past peak. There are vibrant red and orange maple leaves. Some yellow is also showing. Along Hwy 70, near Winter, the color is much closer to peak, if not at peak color along the river shorelines. FALL FEST is this weekend on Hayward's Historic Main Street with Stone Lake's CRANBERRY FESTIVAL happening Saturday, October 7th.

It's beautiful weather up in the Apostle Islands! Our forests are a lush green right now with all the rain and sunshine. Here-and-there leaves are beginning to show their fall colors. Being so far up north and surrounded by Lake Superior, the Apostle Islands and Madeline Island are sometimes the last places to experience peak colors. Odds are PEAK COLORS will be the 3rd week in October, which is perfect timing with our island FALL FEST Saturday, October 21st! One of the best places to view the fall colors is from the ferry, which departs from Bayfield. Come over! www.madelineisland.com

In some spots we are seeing colors at almost 100% peak, such as driving down County Road J. The Turtle Flambeau Flowage is starting to see some spots of color and we are anticipating full color turn to happen any day. Fall color was moving pretty rapidly, but has seemed to slow down due to the crazy warm weather we have been having lately. Once it starts to get much cooler at night, the colors will peak before we know it.

9/21/2017: More summer-like than fall temperatures are forecasted for the upcoming weekend-just in time to ring in the Autumnal Equinox on Friday, September 22! The warm temperatures will make any outdoor activities enjoyable with a lovely backdrop of fall colors to boot. Our fall color is proceeding fairly quickly. Most maples are showing their brilliant fall hues dotting the pine forests with their colors. Birch trees are turning golden-yellow with many showing some color among their green leaves. Oaks are starting to turn too though many still remain mostly green. Our best estimate is that the peak is still over a week away but that could change...stay tuned to our report for the latest conditions in St. Germain. Anglers, mark your calendars for the 29th Annual Greater Wisconsin Musky Tournament on October 7 & 8. This annual catch and release tournament is a fall favorite among all musky hunters.
