Quick! Before it's Gone!

Here in the upper Midwest the leaves are falling like we wish the box elder bugs would. Our technicolor autumn is fading into sepia fall.
On a recent trip to Michigan's upper peninsula we basked in colors and views so glorious and ubiquitous  and overwhelming that we risked becoming blase.
So before the spread of the drab, I'm going to revel in the all-too-soon-gone Autumn of 2012.

One of the wayside rest stops that my Dad loved so much about Michigan. It was a perfect picnic spot.

Gulls may be pesky but they are so photogenic

Gulls assisting in the unloading of a fishing boat. In a photogenic manner.

Sault Ste Marie

The locks between Superior and Huron are the coolest thing EVER

The sun also rises over Canada

You should eat here. We did.

Lake Superior: well-named!

Beautiful photos, Prude! I loved each one. You sure caught the UP at a beautiful time.

I was pleasantly surprised to see you'd been to Munising. Our family loves nice weather. In the winter they get over 200 inches of snow, I think.

My favorites are the tree with the moon and the Lake Superior one!
