Oct. 17, 2022: Here’s a roundup of fall colors around the Old Mission Peninsula. It’s a good thing I took photos yesterday, because it’s really windy today, and I’m guessing a lot of those leaves might be gone in the next day or two.
It was also a good day for taking photos because of the lighting. With fall colors especially, it’s good to take pics on a day that’s overcast because it really makes the colors pop. Yes, those colors really are that brilliant! Read the captions for locations and any stories attached to the pic.

A lot of artists ask if they can use my photos for landscape paintings. The answer is yes! Feel free! I only ask that you send me a photo of the painting when you’re done, so I can post it here on the Gazette. You can either text it to me, (231) 590-4715, or email it to [email protected].
(UPDATE, Oct. 19, 2022: I started writing this post a couple of days ago, right before my power went out due to the high winds. The power is still out, so I hauled my laptop to the library and am writing this from there. I don’t know why, but my little sliver of Bluff Road is always the first to go out and the last to get power restored. At this writing, Consumers Energy gives an estimated restoration time of 5:15 p.m. (after pushing it back and back over the last couple days). If and when I ever get power back, I’m going to call Consumers and get someone on the phone for an interview about all of our power issues on the OMP. Let me know what questions you’d like me ask, [email protected].)
A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers like the New York Times and Los Angeles Times, and magazines like Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So of course, I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the Old Mission Peninsula.
