This has been a most unusually warm fall. October temperatures were 5°F above average, and the warm weather has been continuing into this first week of November. There has been no frost yet this fall in the Madison area. The last weeks of sunny days brought out the most spectacular fall colors, and with no strong winds, the leaves are hanging on. People visit the Preserve in droves. We met a couple this morning who came all the way from Iowa to stroll from Frautschi Point to Picnic Point and on the Willow Creek. The photo walk below gives an idea of what they saw. Photos Kutzbach
