Fall Color Report- Thursday 10/27

Peak is just passing in most parts of West Michigan and for the most part, high winds and rain have dropped most of the leaves.
Traverse City: Just past peak
Roscommon County-around Houghton Lake, lots of yellow mixed in with all the pines. Tamarack especially. Look close for the red berries of Michigan Holly.
Clinton County: over half of the trees are missing leaves around the area. Some pockets of color around rivers like the Looking Glass
Eaton County: It appears that we missed peak color! The storms and wind knocked off many of the colorful leaves, we are hoping to see some color on what trees still have leaves.
Clare County-good color north of Clare, lots of yellow on popples, oaks are holding leaves of reds-browns
Kent County: At peak
Barry County: what trees have leaves are at peak, mostly oaks.
Calhoun County: recent storms have left many trees bare. What trees have leaves left are a mix of green, yellows. Nice colors on Old 27
