I think for color this weekend will be your best bet...supposed to be mostly sunny and mid-60's all weekend. The local TC news had the color for about the North 1/3 of the state at peak this weekend. While I agree, I think the colors will peak this weekend, they're not very good this year...the weather through September was terrible which I think contributed to the lack of color...mostly muted tones...lots of yellow and brown tones not so much the vibrant reds & oranges.

Have a great weekend!

I'm from Indian River and just went to Suttons Bay and Leland Wednesday & Thursday this week. Colors are beautiful. Like deadhead said, not as many vibrant reds, but if you wear your polorized sunglasses it makes everything more vibrant and you see more reds.

After driving all the way over there, we thought we hit the best color of the trip on our way back home on M68 between Alanson and Indian River.

Enjoy your weekend!

We were up in Charlevoix and TC the 10th thru 13th. Spectacular colors on Old Mission and Leelenau. Hope they hold another weekend or two!

Here in Gaylord the color is basically gone. Looking out at the lake, you see more browns than anything else! Noticed the same thing on the drive from Gaylord to Petosky yesterday! =(

I think close to the bay the color lasts a bit longer than inland.

Will find out for sure this weekend when we venture to Elk Rapids to close the cottage up for the year.
