Fall is coming down the road

After 70s and 80s for weeks & weeks, there’s a snap in the air as the north wind is rustling the leaves and it’s still dark at 6:30 in the morning. Those longer nights are key to the Science of Fall Color, and you can read all about what makes leaves change color and see another cool fall photo at that link!

Starting to lay plans as to how to enjoy Michigan’s fall color? While a helicopter color tour is probably out of reach for most of us, the fall color tours on Pure Michigan offer some solid ideas for experiencing Michigan at its colorful best. One note: while they invite you to see the dynamic colors of a trillion trees, the actual number (according to Michigan Forests Forever) is about 11.3 billion. That’s still quite a lot – here’s hoping you get to see at least a few hundred thousand!

    CJT – Today marks the official end of summer and the arrival of Autumn. The Fall is perhaps my favorite season of the year (Spring a close second). Even though the creation is falling into death and decay – a powerful reminder of our own fragility and mortality – there is a special promise and hope attached to this season. The season of growing and harvest closes with a blaze of color-filled glory, reminding us that God is faithful to bring the seasons, and that in Christ, life triumphs over death every time. Let’s keep those things in mind as we enjoy this Autumn. “Michigan in Pictures” also had a special feature on “ArtPrize” which began in “GR” this week. We plan to take that in next weekend. For the most part, it is a wonderful witness to the creativity of man – and Christians too. But for beautiful art work, no one and nothing compares to God’s amazing art work in creation in this Fall season.
