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.
