As the dead of winter approaches, it can be hard to remember why living in a place where winter means below-zero temperatures and the sun setting around 4 p.m., that is, on the rare days when the sun is hidden behind the clouds all days. Luckily, there are some upsides, like the excitement of nature coming back to life in the spring, appreciating the warm sunny days during the summer, being able to enjoy a white Christmas, and the beauty of leaves changing their colors during the fall.
Fall Colors in Door County
This photo was taken a few years ago during a weekend trip to Door County, Wisconsin. Door County is a wonderful area with several state and county parks, charming small towns, and miles and miles of shoreline, with Lake Michigan on one side of the peninsula and Green Bay on the other. The fall colors were at their peak the weekend we visited and while it was cloudy and rainy the entire time, the weather didn’t stop us from taking in the natural beauty Door County has to offer. This photo was taken along a quiet country road as we were on our way to one of the parks.
