Old Mission Peninsula Businesses Look Ahead to Busy Fall Color Tour

Posted: Updated:

Just last week trees in Grand Traverse County didn't look so bright, but the weekend gave them a sudden burst of color. Old Mission Peninsula is perhaps the best place to get a bird's eye view of what Mother Nature can do in such a short period of time. Chateau Grand Traverse has already seen the fall boost.

As of now, the fall season is looking good for wineries and other peninsula businesses, but because of this year's odd weather patterns and how quickly the colors changed, the trees may not look like they usually do in every spot. While the weather plays a big part, they say they can still count on at least three weeks of visitors.

Reporting in Grand Traverse County, Sara Simnitch, and Photojournalist, Jeremy Erickson.
