Once we arrived we went to the bluff where I took pictures before. We did not see more reds but some of the yellow leaves were gone from strong winds. We then decided to go hiking there. I am only going to post some of my pictures but will link up all of them under my tab "My Photos"... Fall 2011.
The path to our first trail we hiked.
Todd ventured out further than I did.
I found my fear of heights were a lot stronger then his.
I am glad he was able to venture out but to tell you the truth he scared me too.
Here is a picture of his hiking shoes that day.
This time the park had a fence up where I could be courageous and see exactly
what Todd saw on the other trail.
I am not sure exactly what or who he was saluting but I love his humor.
After we left the state park, Todd did not want to give up on seeing some red foliage, so onward we went. We continued the Great River Road near the Mississippi River until we reached as far north of Iowa as we could go...
...Dubuque. Although we did not see the deep red leaves, I had a wonderful time with my darling husband. He demonstrated to me once again how thoughtful he is and how much he loves me. I am very fortunate to have met him and feel so lucky that we fell in love with one another.
