Experiencing Ann Arbor Fall Colors in Nichols Arboretum

In all my time around Ann Arbor I had never gone on a stroll through the vast and hilly Nichols Arboretum, “the Arb”, in the Fall. I had the chance to walk the western end of the park the other day alongside University of Michigan Hospital. It sure did not disappoint.

I found myself looking up, up, up at the taller than life trees as I captured Ann Arbor Fall colors. I walked amongst 100-year-old native and exotic trees in a 123-acre landscaped masterpiece which is co-owned by the University of Michigan and the City of Ann Arbor.

Nichols Arboretum is a highly recommended spot for photographers, going for a walk or run or just getting away from it all for a few.

The Huron riverfront, vast hills and subsequent climbing, along with all of the walking trails made for a memorable Autumn experience.

Up-top the tallest of the hills I exited the Autumn beauty finding myself on E. Medical Center Drive at the hospital.

Tip: Don’t put the camera away if exiting here. I was able to capture beautiful views of the surrounding area just outside “the Arb” as I walked alongside the hospital entrances.
