“While most trees and shrubs have just started to put on their fall colors, the red or smooth sumac along the Glacial Ridge Trail already is sporting firey red and orange colors. Red Sumac turns color before other fall foliage.
The DNR predicts the best fall color in 10 years for 2011!” States the Lakes Area Review.
Looking for a spectacular driving route? The Glacial Ridge Trail is a beautiful driving route that meanders through the prairie and woods that is absolutely gorgeous right now and hopefully will last another week.
While the weather is still nice a bike ride or hike on the Glacial Lakes State Trail or the 12 mile trail that follows around Green Lake would be quite refreshing.

The lakes are calm this time of year and a canoe trip to view the fall colors would be spectacular.
If you are looking for a beautiful fall outing be sure to include West Central Minnesota in your plans.
