Autumn Arriving in the Boundary Waters

Autumn is on its way. Several nights ago, our nights saw freezing temperatures, as low as 22 degrees. "Good sleeping weather" as Minnesotans call it. Good thing for down coats and hot water bottles! Every morning we watched the mist gently swirl on the lake's surface as it started to lose some of its heat to the colder air.

On a hike during the day, we experienced a little hail blow over. Everything looked a little more wintry shortly afterwards.

The leaves are starting to change, but are not at peak yet. Some much needed rain the last couple days is dampening the Pagami Creek fire, and will cause the leaf color to last a bit longer.
