The timing of the changing colors does vary from year to year. Last year was a bit later than “normal” and this year seemed early but closer to “normal” Not sure what variables are in action here, I guess Mother Nature likes to remain unpredictable!
There is much more change south of Copper Harbor – some places have reported peak colors already. We still have some green here but the colors are changing quickly and will from here on to peak.
