Fall on the waters of the Northern Midwest is a magical time of year. A time of transformation from lush, green, warmth to crisp, colorful foliage. A constant sweet scent of earthy, decaying leaves encircles the air on a constant level; the most beautiful form of death making way for new life after a long winters nap. With over 200 inland lakes, a plethora of hiking trails, protected national forest, and Lake Michigan shoreline my homeland of Schoolcraft County in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula offers a more unique Autumn experience than your typical tourist destination. Life slows down just a little once the Summer tourist go home and the leaves start to fall, but Mother Nature is just getting started.
