This year the fall colors started 1-2 weeks later then usual. It turned out to be a beautiful fall with warm weather though I thought the colors weren't as vibrant as in other years.
Here is a small sampling from the Blue Hills area in Rusk County, northern Wisconsin where I live and feel fortunate to call my home.
