Enjoying the Fall Colors

My favorite season, as with many folks is fall. There is something about the cool nights, and the warm days with some hints of chill that brings amazing changes in the north woods. 2014 has been an especially beautiful fall. Weather has been such that the leaves turned a little, then stopped for a week or so, leaving us with a wonderland of oranges, yellows, reds, and greens. The cooler frosty nights of late have brought on peak color, today the leaves were floating gently down to the forest floor. There is something so peaceful and breathtaking about this time of year. Some of our guests enjoy this time of year by driving our many back roads to see the color. Our horseback riders and carriage drivers enjoy the forest on trails that lead primarily  to the south and west of the ranch http://www.spurofthemomentranch.org/spring-in-mountain/. Horseback riding and carriage driving ends the end of October as the hunting season picks up.

ATVing/UTVing is also a great way to view the colors of fall in Mountain. Find additional information about the sport in our spring adventure http://www.spurofthemomentranch.org/spring-in-mountain/


The Nicolet National forest is rich in wildlife. The ranch is a comfortable, warm spot to hang your hat and coat after a long day of hunting. Enjoy heating up hot meal specialties from home; sitting by the fire; and exchanging stories of the days hunt. The Nicolet National Forest provides over 1/2 million acres for public hunting during the various seasons throughout the year. Deer is probably the most popular of the hunting seasons and brings many hunters to the area. The most popular seasons are for deer, bear, grouse, and turkeys. To get information on hunting regulations check the Department of Natural Resources Link http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/hunt/regulations.html .
