See you during the 2017 Fall season.
Estimated Peak: 3rd Week of October
Currently: Past Peak
Trees are showing strong red's, rusts, gold/yellow - on the bluffs of the Mississippi River and the Kickapoo Valley. The white pelicans are migrating South making the river and Highway 35 very pretty - especially our sunsets. Swans are coming in and the ducks have arrived! (So have the duck hunters.)
Highway 27, the ridge road is a very beautiful trip - in both directions with the colors are at their peak as well as Highway 171 - through Gays Mills and the orchard areas. Bring your camera and binoculars because the image of the bluffs on the Mississippi River is breathtaking. Stop at one of the pull-off places on Hwy 35 (The Great River Road National Scenic Byway) and take in the moment.
