Fall In Ann Arbor along Huron River Drive

Being out on the open road in Autumn in Ann Arbor means there is a good chance you will find me on Huron River Drive.

A Fall in Ann Arbor is not complete unless a few trips is had on this roughly ten mile route between Ann Arbor and Dexter.

A good portion of the route snugs the Huron River. I found a few random spots to stop along the road to capture Autumn’s beauty. I was very careful when taking a lot these photos, as the speed is 35 mph throughout, but a lot of cars go flying through here.

I made sure to take some time, put the camera down and just reflect on what I was seeing. I just had to say it that way haha. Due to the sun angle this time of year, it can be hard to find spots with lots of light at times. I found this area by Barton Dam to be especially beautiful when it is lit up right after dawn.

My favorite part of this drive is from the Barton Nature Area parking area near Main Street until you reach Delhi Metropark. I will let the rest of the pictures do the talking. Cheers to Fall in Ann Arbor! ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ‚

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.
