Michigan in the Fall – Day 1

Taking a small break from Spain to post some photographs of Fall!  Last weekend I visited my best friend and cousin Denise in Michigan.  We stayed around her town for two days and then we took off on a girls weekend.  On the first day we drove up to Petoskey.

 

First colorful trees of the day was taken at a gas station.  Not sure what this little building is for, but sure thought it was unique and worth taking a photo of.

The leaves were not in full color by Denise’s house, but they changed rapidly the more north we drove.  We took Tunnel of Trees route on M-119 from Harbor Springs to Cross Village.

I would have liked to see more pinks and reds, but it was pretty amazing!  Also more pull-offs would have been nice.

On the way to the Tunnel of Trees I believe we stopped at Petoskey State Park (however, I’m not positive).  It was snowing and raining and just cold!  But, we got out and took a few pics.

As we were wrapping up our first day of leaf peeping, we ran across the following barn and trees.  Probably my favorite trees of the day.

That’s a wrap of the Day 1 of Girl’s Leaf Peeper Weekend 2018 as we like to call it.  We had a great time, lots of laughs, lunch out, Sangria Flight, Casino winnings and more.

Come back tomorrow for Day 2!  Drive up to Paradise, Michigan.
