The leaves have fallen

The leaves are falling rapidly in northern Michigan. This photo is of the adjacent vacant lot to our log cabin. It has a steep slope and not as much frontage on the lake so the city doesn't believe it will be a buildable lot. It's nice to think this wooded area will remain untouched and provide a nice habitat for the birds and animals.

Fall Events and almost a Full Moon

I took this photo of the morning moon from the deck of our log cabin. Doesn't a full moon remind you of fall? Which reminds me, as we are winding down the fall season - there are still some great Fall activities Up North that you can take advantage of. I've listed a few right here:

Have fun kids!

Morning Lake Mist

This weekend up at our log cabin, I woke up early in the morning to capture this photo of the mist on our little lake. The fall colors have peaked and the leaves are falling faster now. Time to get out the rake!

Sledding Path

In the winter, you can sled or toboggan down this steep hill located right off Old 27 in Gaylord, not too far from Otsego Lake. I think it's very scenic with the fall colors or blanketed with snow. When the snow flurries arrive, I am going to pretend I am 8 years old again and give the hill a whirl!

Red & Gold

These two trees are located right next to our log cabin. I am so glad they weren't cleared off the land when we began building.

Heading down the train tracks

These train tracks run through Waters and Gaylord, MI. These tracks are infrequently used and in the winter, this becomes a part of the snowmobile path.

Fall on Big Bradford Lake

One of the most beautiful images you can capture in Northern Michigan is the fall colors of the trees reflecting on their lakes.

80% Peak

I just arrived at our log cabin and am amazed at the changes in the trees. Gaylord is at 80% peak right now. This photo was shot off our deck, if you look closer - you can see the lake peeking between the trees. Tomorrow I should be able to get a good series of photos in the area. I just love this time of year!

Turn it up!

Can't wait to get up north this week and check out the next level of fall colors. I am ready!

Headed down the trail in our ATV

My husband recently convinced me to take a ride on his 'Rhino' Atv. Gaylord has a maze of trails including a 60 mile trail that runs to Mackinaw City! We didn't go that far, but it was nice to take a leisurely ride in the woods.
