The Mighty Mississippi

Posted by Picasa
We went for a nice long fall drive last weekend to apple country in Wisconsin, we bought yummy apples, jams and cheese curds. The fall color has not quite reached its peak but it has started, I wish the sky has been blue but it was still a fun day.

I think the colors are a bit more vibrant on a cloudy day than when the sky is blue. Nice picture!

I think the color of those leaves more than makes up for the loss of blue sky! Lovely shot!

Ahhhhhhh! My favorite time of year...this is the time when I am most homesick for the Quad-Cities. Growing up on the Miss was special, and autumn colors were amazing. Here in Austin, we feel lucky to not have triple digit temps anymore, and the changing colors are only in our memories and fake fall foliage we put around the porch and entry-ways...sigh...

Great pictures. Sounds like a neat trip. Cheese curds? I'll have to look them up.

Beautiful photo! It brought this songs to mind
"We fired our guns and the British kept a comin',
There wasn't 'bout as many as there was awhile ago.
We fired once more and they began to runnin'
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico." (Battle of New Orleans)

I've become such a home body. I should get out and enjoy the parks and such. That sure is a beautiful photo of the river and surrounding area!

Tripped across your blog. Love the photos and now have to follow after the "cheese curd" post. Husband is from Wisconsin and boy is he fond of cheese curds. Are you close to the Mississippi?
