Fall Color Video & Report Oct. 23-25

This weekend at Devil’s Lake State Park you can still expect to see a lot of color, especially yellows. Some oak trees are mixing in a bit of deep red as well.  You’ll also find some areas are a bit “past it” and if we get any rain today (Friday Oct, 23) we could have more bare trees than we’d like to see over the weekend. Still though, there is a lot of color and it’s certainly worth the visit.

But don’t take my word for it!  Sit back for the 5 minute video that I put together this week which will take you on a drive through the north shore entrance road, through the day use area and out to the exit.  If you have the connection speed, be sure to set the video to HD. [Direct Youtube Link]
