Mid-October is a bittersweet time along Lake Superior’s Chequamegon Bay near Ashland, Wisconsin USA.The Lake level is up this year, the sun is shining and days in the 60s are easy to take. The trees ever-changing colors radiate throughout the north; predominantly yellow with the occasional bright red of maples. Deer apples littering the ground and bing cherries are an open invitation to the birds and deer that frequent our urban wilderness. The sound of the creek across theroad competes with the traffic noise on U.S. 2.

Summer’s memories are just that. Soon, too, winter snows will change this landscape as well. But for now, Autumn rings forth much like Spring blossomed.DSCN1281
