The Upper Peninsula is about a week away from peak fall color, AAA Michigan said Wednesday. The auto club, which takes a weekly survey of state parks and
visitors' bureaus, said the most vivid reds, oranges and yellows can be found in state parks in the Ishpeming and Manistique areas.
The northeast and northwest sections of the Lower Peninsula are showing color intensity ranges of 40 to 75 percent. Peak color still is another week or two away in those regions of the state.
The best reports are near Cadillac, Frankfort, Manistee and Gaylord. The best color reports in southern Michigan are from the Blandford Nature Center near Grand Rapids and Kensington Metro Park in Oakland County, AAA said.
