Two weekends ago, the leaves here were at PEAK. I had Saturday off (no weddings to shoot), so the three of us jumped in the car and drove along the St. Croix River through Stillwater and up to Taylors Falls. I honestly cannot remember having a more spectacular fall than this one in my lifetime. Oh, and also? Autumn in the Twin Cities lasts longer than 2 weeks! This is my third fall here, and I am still amazed by that every year. In Fargo the leaves go from green to brown to on the ground in literally about 2 weeks’ time.
Forgive the blur in some of these shots–they were taken from the car window as we whizzed by the breathtaking scenery. One of the best fall drives in Minnesota!
I can’t even describe how beautiful this Sumac was as you drove by it, enveloping you on the highway. My photo does it no justice whatsoever.
The wall was to hold back the beauty.
Oh, hello boat!
We ended our day (in the pouring rain) with cheeseburger pizza (pickles on it!) and Pistachio and Monster Cookie ice creams at Schoony’s in Taylors Falls. Yum!
