Fall Colors

An early spring and a dry summer this year have combined to bring us early fall color.  Driving from Park Rapids to Bemidji yesterday we were surprised by how much more color change there has been away from the lake.  Itasca State Park is already reporting a 10 to 25 percent change in their shrubs and trees.

You can keep track of Itasca's fall color reports on this webpage:
