  1. I am so hoping to take a fall trip to see the changing leaves. I hadn’t thought of Michigan, but I see the state has beautiful autumn colors. Wow!

  2. Incredible pictures! I’ve always wanted to experience fall in Boston but sounds like Michigan is a great option too. Autumn is definitely my favourite season now,especially after being in Japan during fall!

  3. Michigan is awesome, so is fall with the leaves foliage! Been to Michigan a few years ago but it was a bit too early and everything was still pretty green, so it seems I need to go back to catch Indian Summer in that area 😀

  4. As an East-Coaster who has basically travel up and down the east side of the U.S., I’m ashamed to say I’ve never been to Michigan! These beautiful fall leaves are telling me I have been seriously missing out. When I finally fine my way back Stateside, Michigan is now on my travel list for the U.S!

  5. So beautiful! People always underestimate the beauty of the Midwest just because they assume it is freezing always. In reality, there is no where more beautiful to see the seasons change! Great pictures!

  6. The colors are stunning! What beautiful scenery and what a wonderful time of year to go for a drive and enjoy nature and all it’s wonders. The tunnel of trees is so picturesque, love your photos!

  7. I would love to experience fall as you have. Your photos are amazing. I felt as if I was there in real life just looking at them.
