Found blooming in Cook County by Lorraine Anderson - lorraine@bwca.cc (Be sure to check out the past reports linked at the right as well!)

Where we went:
Fall seems to be just around the corner. There are some Moose Maples beginning to show color. It always seems sad to have summer end but fall is so gorgeous. Along the roadways we see Goldenrod, purple & white Asters and Pearly Everlasting. The plants and the forest are getting ready for fall. We had our picnic lunch in a clearing off of Bally Creek Road. It was so beautiful there that we plan to go there next week.

Gunflint Trail, Lima Mt Road, Lima Grade, South Brule Road, Devils Track Road, Bally Creek Road and #7.
