When do fall colors peak in the Keweenaw?

Because of the micro-climate created by Lake Superior and the peninsula’s northern location, the Keweenaw’s fall colors usually peak between the last week of September and the first two weeks of October.  Specific Keweenaw locations may vary with Copper Harbor and Isle Royale peaking a bit later than areas farther south.
