The fall colors are really starting to pop up now in the woods inland from Lake Superior. It'll be a awhile yet before the Birch and Aspen start to show their autumn glory, but the Maples are really starting to take off! This photo was made about 7 or 8 miles inland from Lake Superior at the base of one of the Maple ridges in Grand Portage. It was a cold, wet and cloudy day which really makes the colors seem extra vibrant. I really liked the arrangement of leaves on this young tree and couldn't resist making a photograph of it.
