Mike and I took a road trip in the car, to southern Minnesota following the great Mississippi River. Southern MN is beautiful with the bluffs along the river and the leaves turning amazing colors.
Our first stop was Red Wing, home of Red Wing shoes and Red Wing Pottery. I happen to grab a picture of a very large boot outside the Red Wing shoe store.
Historic downtown Red Wing.
The colors are not yet at there best, but still wonderful.
Our next stop was Lake City, as you can see from the sign it is the birthplace of waterskiing. Lake City is located on a part of the Mississippi called Lake Pepin, the river widens in this area.
The people in Lake City really now how to decorate for Halloween, there were some pretty awesome displays.
We stopped in the Old Bank Bar and Grill for a glass of wine and hamburger.
Our last stops were Lanesboro and Harmony well known Amish communities.
We traveled 330 miles, saw some beautiful country, maybe next time we can do it in the MH and spend more time enjoying the small towns along the river.
