Scenic Views, Scenic Byways, Transportation, Roads, Woody Plants, Trees Hey! Not so fast - Strictly not recommended for autum color touring is this high speed travel on Michigan byways. The wise motorist takes it nice and s-l-o-w, especially at this time of year, when every turn in the road turns up a different view of Michigan's autumn color spectacular. The Copper Country has many such scenic roads. [Image of a vehicle speeding down a tree covered road.]
