Fall Color Update for the week of September 20th
As days grow shorter, and nights grow longer and cooler, leaves are starting the process of changing colors. The recent warm weather has delayed the change a little, but the color palette is definitely starting to change from green to a hint of yellow and red peeking through. Be sure to follow the Voyageurs National Park Facebook page for the latest updates on fall colors.
Voyageurs National Park staff encourages you to come out and explore the park this fall and enjoy the colors of North Woods.
