The fall and spring are special times of year when the wilderness is in a state of change. Because Eels Lake is in a region with deciduous trees, fall sees the wilderness turning into the colors of red, orange, and yellow. When the leaves have fallen, the nature of the land is more visible. Then winter covers the land with the white of snow. And all is silent. But come spring everything begins to come back to like. Ice and snow melts, leaves emerge, forest animals express a sense of excitement. Clearly, one should not overlook the adventure of fall and spring visits to the Eels Lake area.
