October Beauty

Welcome to all the travelors and visitors who come the Ironwood area and the Western U.P. at this most beautiful time of the year.  The Fall transition time offers a wealth of color that sweeps across our entire landscape.  As we are in the middle of October, it is also a fragile time--a good rain and a high wind and the leaves depart their tree homes and fall to the ground.  Here in Ironwood, we have already had our first snowflakes, and, though they quickly melted, it was a reminder that Mr. Jack Frost will soon be bringing the conditions where the flakes will stay, accumulate, and create a very different landscape color:  white!   Here at the Depot Chamber office, we have been puting up new Christmas lights around the Depot, the Depot Park Pavilion, and our Jack Frost tree.   Early to do this?  Yes, but also much more comfortable to do it now in the Fall sunshine rather than waiting for November's serious snowfalls.
