It's a Colorful World at Moose Mtn - Sept 24 @ Moose Mountain SNA | Duluth | Minnesota | United States

Moose Mountain SNA is a glorious place to explore fall colors, with a wide array of vistas available, in a variety of directions. What colors are showing up where? Are there differences depending on which direction you look, and what reasons might be connected to differences? Which trees turn which color? What causes differences in colors in tree species? We’ll enjoy the views and explore what nature’s palette has to offer at Moose Mountain SNA.
