Michigan Fall Colors

2012 September 27,28,29,30
A trip to the cabin in Manistee County Michigan.  We walked the Manistee River Trail from Red Bridge to Cedar Creek and back again.  The Fall colors had a good start.  Many trees still had lots of green leaves which made a nice contrast with the reds, yellows, oranges.  It was beautiful.

We thought this was a soccer ball but turned out to be a puffball.

We stopped in at Link's Pond near the weir on the Little Manistee River.  This is a cool place.  And we saw a Harebell.

So the Fall colors are only going to get better, if you can, take a road trip and enjoy Michigan.

Welcome back-I've missed your blog. I've never seen a giant puffball-that one is huge!

Thanks Allen, the puff ball really looked like a soccer ball and it had a deer hoof print on the top of it.
I am not sure how to catch up on 4 months of not posting. Maybe just let it go.
