Where to go: A drive around Tettegouche State Park (Hwy 61 to Hwy 1 to Lax Lake Road and back to 61 through Silver Bay) will treat you to a riot of maples and other trees in full blaze.

What you'll see: A majority of the maple trees, inland, are in full color. Along the North Shore, the birches and aspens are yet to peak.

Also of interest:

Our cooler temperatures in the past few weeks make it truly feel like fall on the North Shore. Many of our larger dragonflies, such as the Darners, are feeding in large swarms in the evenings, trying to squeeze everything they can out of our dwindling summer.

Our fall mushrooms are still abundant due to our cool, damp weather.

Special Offer for Park Permits

Canít decide between a one-day or year-round park permit? The DNR has a special offer that can help. Start by purchasing a one-day permit for $5 and visit as many state parks as possible. After visiting the state parks, trade in the one-day permit by the end of that day and get $5 off the purchase of a year-round permit. Year-round permits, which cost $25, provide unlimited access to all 76 Minnesota state parks and recreation areas for a full year from the month of purchase.
