Day Trip Down To Winona

The Hubs and I decided to take a day trip last Friday to take in some more fall color and just enjoy the day.  We ran across a curious thing.  It was like a little community of floating houses on the Mississippi River at Winona, called Latch Island.  You can tell that there's been a drought.  Many of the little houses had rain barrels, but they appeared to be empty.  We aren't sure if these are just weekend cabins, or if people stay year round~if so I think it could be really cold.  Anyway, I thought it was strange enough to take some images.

Taylor's Falls, Autumn 2012

I've had a chance to spend a little time painting from some of the images I took last week at Taylors Falls.  It's so beautiful this time of year, and I hope to get down to the Lake Pepin area next weekend, if the wind doesn't blow all the leaves off the trees.
