Minnesota’s autumn colors were not exactly out in full force for a while. September was rather dry and crispy, so leaves blew off before they had a chance to turn. On top of that, the leaves that stuck around didn’t turn right away. I still saw lots of green leaves two thirds of the way through October. These were taken during the first weekend of November, a month past the state’s peak time. The rain just kept the strongest ones up there, so it gave me a chance to catch some of the most vibrant parts of autumn.
