Fall Colors Nearing Peak In Region

10/21/17 – The southern half of Wisconsin still has some great fall colors. Travel Wisconsin Dot Com says most counties in southern and central areas are at 50-to-100-percent of their peaks for red, yellow, and orange leaves. The far south normally does not peak until the end of October — and colors there are only about 25-to-50-percent of their peaks. Most of northern Wisconsin is past its peak, but a few counties are at 100-percent this weekend. The Beaver Dam area is said to be at 95-percent peak. The Fall Color Report says there is only one or two weekends left to enjoy autumn paddle boarding, kayaking and canoeing on Beaver Dam Lake and other area lakes and rivers. The Horicon Marsh is said to be at 75-percent peak. Columbia County is said to be at 100-percent peak while Jefferson is at 50-percent, Fond du Lac is at 55-percent color and Washington County is at 70-percent.
