How is the color in Ely?

The color most visible from the roads (Echo, Kawishiwi Trail, Fernberg, Hwy. 21), which is what most are interested in, consists largely of younger trees stressed by drought and roadside challenges such as salt and other chemicals. They always turn early. The same is true of younger maples and other trees along southern exposure rocky/sandy lakeshores, which have a tougher existence and dry out faster.

The above-type trees showed pockets of brilliant color two weeks ago with much still looking beautiful. Those areas are peaking now and through the rest of the week.

The trees in the forest itself are just starting to turn. I expect the interior forest trees to peak next week.

Great to hear as I will be up in your neck of the woods next week with several gigs of memory cards.

Thanks for the update!

Spent the weekend working at Lutsen and they are at peak right now, due mainly to the elevation. Lots of reds this year.
