Diana and I just returned from a two-week stay on the North Shore (Minnesota’s shoreline along Lake Superior). Right along the shore the leaves are just starting to change to their fall colors. However, if you go a couple of miles inland, they are in their full glory. The difference is caused by the moderating effect that Lake Superior has on the weather near the shoreline.
Here are some examples of the gorgeous scenery. The maples provide brilliant red, orange, and yellow leaves at this time of year. I especially like it when some of the leaves have changed but others are still green. This photo has the additional benefit of including some birch trunks that give a nice contrast.
