September sunsets have been awesome day after day. It is hard not to pick up the camera each night and take a bunch of pics while the sun sets. Sure will be missing this daily site. Plenty of color to enjoy in the sky while we wait for the fall color display in the woods.
As we were coming back from town the other day we noticed that a few trees have already started turning colors. Maybe 1% of the trees had some color in them, but for the most part beautiful weather has been on us day after day. Yes, we continue to get plenty of rain, too. This may be delaying the color season. Those few trees that had color really stand out. Watch for the color season to come on real quickly. UPDATE: Luce county is reported at about 10% with peak projected to 2nd week of October. You can track all the UP counties here, and choose from several nice routes here.
The salmon have yet to show up. It's a bit late but they'll show up sooner or later. All week long there have been a bunch of rods in the water at the Two Hearted River and very few fish are being hooked up. We thought with all the rain we have gotten that the run offs and the high water would of helped stimulate the spawning process. Well, that's not the case this year. Anytime now!!!
The rains have brought about a tremendous mushroom crop. We must have 12-15 different varieties in the yard alone. Some we have never seen before. We have said this before - if a person really loves mushrooms, then they need to educate themselves on the different varieties of Fall mushrooms. One could pick up bags and bags of edibles. We found all of these just around the yard.
There are a lot of resources for leaning about mushroom safety. You'll find many of them here. Find a credible and knowledgeable source, including experienced local knowledge. Meanwhile, our packing continues as we prepare for a mid-October departure. Moving after being in one place 24 years is not recommended unless you have a large dumpster close by.
