As autumn approaches we must begin to say goodbye to the warm summer weather and welcome the cool fall days. Many consider it to truly be the best time to appreciate the many wonders the northwoods has to offer. Fall in the northwoods is truly amazing with all the bright vibrant colors.

If we keep winter in front of us we won’t forget to enjoy every moment we can get outside. You may want to take a walk along the Long Lake nature trail as the leaves start turning, take an early stroll by the waters of Lake Thompson to see the fog over the lake or a bike ride down the old farm road while absorbing the beautiful fall colors.

The northern lights are almost as brilliant as the changing leaves this time of year. Autumn evenings are the perfect time to sit around a campfire and make lasting memories.
