The weekend forecast is calling for some great, warm weather and it will be a perfect day for “Au Sable Day.” This family-friendly event will be held Saturday, September 19th from 11am-5pm. Hosted by the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore – National Park Service, come enjoy some music and learn the history of this beautiful lighthouse. The special activities include:
- Guided tours of the keepers quarters and light tower
- Lee Murdock maritime musician
- Tours of the Au Sable photovoltaic power system
Since the lighthouse is in a secluded area, van transportation will be provided by ALTRAN. Just head to the Hurricane River Campground and they will drive you to the lighthouse. Make sure to bring a camera and enjoy the great weather at this beautiful Lake Superior lighthouse! For more information, call (906) 387-3700.
As for around here, the month of September has been our summer. Because June and July were really cool, we’ve had incredible weather this month and we’re still waiting for it to rain. This is actually the driest start of September on record! With the lack of rain, I think it’s given the trees a bit of a jump-start in turning color. Although the fall color peak is probably a few weeks away, it seems like a lot of the trees have a touch of color at the ends of their leaves. We’ll keep you posted on the progress of the fall colors; it’s always a good one!
Also, mark your calendars to visit Munising October 9th and 10th. A big Corvette car show, in Munising, is in the works and we’ll have more info soon!
