Have I Left The Country?

Nope, this photo was taken along one of my favorite areas in Minnesota. I'm just south of the Twin Cities on Highway 61 traveling to Winona. The body of water you're looking at is Lake Pepin, which is in Lake City. Lake Pepin claims to have invented water skiing. What's strange about Lake Pepin is, this is really the Mississippi River. There is just a very large area of water that Lake City decided to call a lake.

The bluffs you see on the right is Minnesota, the land you see on the left is Wisconsin side. Highway 61 snakes around the bluffs and is quite the drive during the fall time of the year. When I took this trip down to Winona, we missed the peak fall colors by about a week. It was still a very enjoyable trip and I'll be posting a few photos of the area over the upcoming holiday weekend.

You are right; it is a beautiful drive and you captured it very well. The drive on the Wi side is equally lovely and the small towns are fun to browse, too.

One of the most beautiful drives in the state! I've loved Lake Pepin since my days as a carefree kid on family vacations to the area.
Beautiful shot!
