On Wednesday, Dad and I headed down south of Rochester for our annual fall road trip.
We always travel to the extreme south east corner of MN, dad calls it God's country.
It doesn't matter how many times we do this....
I ALWAYS see something I haven't seen before or hear a story from dad that I've never heard.
I needed to break this road trip into two parts, cuz well....
there's just so much to talk about.
It's fall so we got the "colors"
It's not prime in SE minnesota yet but there was
pops of colors, everywhere we looked.
and of course the harvest.... lots of farmers in their fields
I just get all giddy when I'm this close to the action.
I just loved this beautiful farm,
Does anyone else notice the fence posts?
I had to walk in this corn field,
it's in the very field that my Grandpa Erickson farmed many years ago.
then there's this...a field full of hay rolls.
The farmers have been busy!
We stopped in Spring Grove for lunch
a very cute small town, famous for their
My dad is full-blooded Norsky, so I just had to talk this picture of him under this sign.
We ate here, great food, lovely small town venue and
awesome hand-scooped ice cream!
Just a glimpse of one of the long, down hill, curvy roads my dad walked to get to school.
This 2 mile walk can't be captured in a photo, but the thing that amazes me the most is that dad and all the other neighbor kids, had to walk back up it again at the end of the day. CRAZY!
Stop back in a day or two to read more about our fall road trip.
