North Shore sees the benefits of the season

Posted: Updated:

The colors along Lake Superior's North Shore are really starting to pop.

"We've got some great yellows, we've got a few reds. We've got the rust browns, oranges," said Carolyn Rock, a naturalist at Gooseberry Falls State Park.

It's not just the North Shore that's enjoying the foliage.

At this point in the season most of the Northland is seeing beautiful fall colors, except for a small area that's past peak.

The colors of the season mean a noticeable increase in traffic at Minnesota's state parks.

"Oh yes. We will be crazy on Saturday. Even on Friday it will be a full parking lot. So, a recommendation of carpooling with, friends and family, coming early," Rock added.

The influx of tourists means more activity at local businesses, as well.

"It brings a lot of people to two harbors, up the shore even further. We find that we're getting a lot of tourists, coming from Duluth, even further around down south," said Maddy Stewart, marketing and events coordinator at Castle Danger Brewery.

Of course, the businesses are happy to welcome the tourists and the season.

"We love the traffic that we get. You think summer is your busiest time, but really it's summer and rolls right into fall for us," added Stewart.
