After visiting Lake of the Clouds we drove over to the Summit Peak area for a short hike up to the tower atop Summit Peak. The light shining through the gold covered trees was outstanding. It gave a golden glow to everything.

Particularly interesting was the fact that the ground cover was also changing color at the same time as the trees.

The view from the tower was not as nice as it was from Lake of the Clouds although you do have a nice view of Lake Superior from this vantage point. The fact that you can see the lake also means that the winds off of the lake can bring down the leaves which seems to have happened in this area.
