Breathtaking Autumn Colors Viewed Atop Oberg Mountain

In the United States, you’d be hard pressed to find a more majestic spot to see the splendor of fall than on top of Oberg Mountain in Minnesota. After a moderate three mile hike, you’ll be amply rewarded with stunning views of Lake Superior, Oberg Lake, and Moose Mountain. Come in the fall, and you’ll look down upon a gorgeous maple forest that comes alive with colors.

As photographer Bryan Hansel states, “Oberg is one of the best fall color hikes when it’s at peak. This photo (immediately below) happened shortly after the sun rose. The sunlight was dodging in and out of the clouds, so I had to wait for it to splash across the valley. Part of nature photography is showing up at the right time and part of nature photography is waiting for the right conditions…I waited about 15 minutes to get this shot. I’ve waited on Oberg for the exactly right conditions more than once. Last year, I waited three hours just for the clouds to move in. It made the shot. I feel like the 15 minute wait for this to happen was well worth it.”
