Though the trees in the lakes area started showing their fall colors a couple of weeks ago, the blazing orange, fiery reds and golden yellows are at or nearing their peak this week.


“This week is our peak fall color time,” said Carrie Johnston, president of the Detroit Lakes Regional Chamber of Commerce.

“The scenic overlook on Detroit Lake on Highway 10 East is one my favorites,” she added.
