Last fall I had the chance to travel one of my favorite roads, Highway 61 to Winona. Because I started out at 5:45am, I was just reaching Lake Pepin when the sun rose above the water. It was a most beautiful sight. It was still a little too early to see the fall colors. I wondered if there would even be that much color on the trees because of the lack of rain.
A few days after this I found myself on a very different road. One that led me off the beaten path. I decided to walk down to Mounds Park.
