Continuing on to Mellon we decided it had been a long time since we stopped at Copper Falls State Park so we decided make the visit. Recent rains meant there was a good amount of water flowing.

After a brief stop at home we embarked on what turned out to be our last fall color trip. Our first stop was the Blue Hills just east of Rice Lake, Wisconsin. We were a little late for the peak color but there were still some nice color in some areas. We did notice that most of the lakes in the area were very high with some of the docks under water.

These were a couple of shots as we reached the outskirts of the Blue  Hills. We encountered the horseback rider of one of the back roads.

These are some shots in the Aldie Lake area.

This is the first time we encountered Bald Eagles on our fall trips through the area. In all we must have seen about a dozen Bald Eagles.

We also encountered a Ruffed Grouse along the road. It posed for some photos before flying off.

 

While reading Phil Stagg’s book Waterfalls of Michigan I noticed there were quite a few waterfalls along the Union Mine Trail in Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park. I had been on the trail before but had not noticed any interesting waterfalls. As it turns out the best time to find the waterfalls is in the spring when there is good water flow. Fortunately there had been a lot of rain in the U.P. this fall and there was good water flow so we were optimistic of finding some nice waterfalls. We weren’t disappointed. They aren’t the biggest waterfalls but there are a lot of them.
