Where to go: You just can't go wrong with a hike up the Temperance River Gorge.

What you'll see:

A few maple leaves are starting to blush on individual branches and balsam polars, which never get very bright yellow, are starting to brown and look tired.

The wet summer has kept our North Shore streams flowing well throughout the season, so the waters of the Temperance River are still flowing. Our ferns are starting to die back and there are some stressed maples that are turning color, otherwise, things still look pretty summery, here!

Also of interest: Pink Salmon, also called Humpies, should be spawning any time now. Look for schools of spawning fish in shallow pools, especially early in the morning and later in the evening. They spawn and die after only two years and do not reach sizes much over a pound.

Special Offer for Park Permits

Canít decide between a one-day or year-round park permit? The DNR has a special offer that can help. Start by purchasing a one-day permit for $5 and visit as many state parks as possible. After visiting the state parks, trade in the one-day permit by the end of that day and get $5 off the purchase of a year-round permit. Year-round permits, which cost $25, provide unlimited access to all 76 Minnesota state parks and recreation areas for a full year from the month of purchase.
