Where to go: The yellows of the birches and aspens have turned a glowing amber along the Lake Superior shore, right now, but the leaves are falling, quickly.
What you'll see: The sugar maples are completely done but the smaller mountain maple and other shrubs are showing color this week. Aspen leaves are falling.
Also of interest: The trees are getting bare which allows for longer views through what once had been think forest cover.Last updated: October 23, 2014
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.
