Just a few miles from my door is Backbone State Park, and, at this time of the year, it is a visual paradise. This photo was taken at the trail head for a popular path that meanders along the bluffs high above the Maquoketa River. Some stunning views await visitors.
Take a few minutes. Step outside and away from any digital device. Have you noticed any colorful fall foliage near your home? In these parts of Iowa, the leaves are beautiful and the forests are full of highlights that Mother Nature has created just for us. Enjoy.

The exhibit contains artwork of all types and is open through the end of October. If you live in the vicinity, be sure to check it out.

If you are from these parts, this photo is easily recognizable as downtown Dubuque, Iowa. How many steeples do you see? At least five; however, as locals know, if you stand on the bluff overlooking the downtown, numerous steeples are in view. And, yes, if you were wondering, the Hotel Julien is slightly visible in the bottom left corner. Anyway, soon Mother Nature will paint the Mississippi River bluffs with all sorts of autumn hues and delight leaf lookers from near and far. Take a day and enjoy.
