We knew the colors were nearing peak here in southern Mn,
so we ventured out yesterday to see what we could see...
Hwy. 14E is such a scenic way to travel to Winona, versus the faster route on I 90.
As we traveled the winding roads past Lewiston,
I made Rick pull over on a curve with no shoulder so I could photograph this beautiful sight.
I risked my life for this photo...Ha :)
My Husband LOVES Hardees "Frisco breakfast sandwich".
Rochester has not had a Hardees for years, so first stop was his favorite
Fast Food restaurant for a little morning goodness :)
After we got our "Hardees fix", we visited this neat little shop in downtown Winona.
I picked up a couple of fall decorations for my dining room, such a fun place to browse.
Did you notice the lady in the 3rd window from the left?
The glass had been removed and this was a painting.
You cant go to Winona without stopping by Bloedow's Bakery...yum!
Down by the campus of Winona State, by the lakes.
I was glad the "colors" had waited for us... such a spectacular site.
Then there's Garvin Height's...
If you haven't been to Garvin Height's lookout in the fall,
you haven't seen this breathtaking view...
...and this is only a hint of what you see until you take your eye away from the camera's view-finder.
Winona State University campus (center)
My daughter attended college here, such a beautiful setting!
The East Lake apartments where my daughter lived the last two years of her schooling
(Located a few blocks east of the campus)
We got our fill of pretty, in this quaint little town of Winona.
