Hello Ann Arbor Autumn! Time to Return to Parker Mill.

It’s mid-October in Michigan, which means it was time for some Ann Arbor Autumn color exploration. The first place I usually head to is Parker Mill County Park on the east end of town. The park reaches its peak early on while most everything else is still green, so there was no time to waste.

My spot is on the south end of the park right alongside the wooden fence which separates the parking lot from Geddes Road. I don’t know what it is. The variety of orange, yellow, red and purple leaves plays a part. The change in elevation along the park plays a role, as does the historic Parker Mill Grist Mill in the background.

The overhanging tree limbs and the way the fallen leaves collect on the ground also paints this as an Ann Arbor Fall spot for me.

      Thank you Laci! Love it, still with some the green mixed in too. One of the reasons I always wind up back at this Ann Arbor spot.
