  1. Lovely photos and my favorite part is no snow! I grew up in Michigan and now have spent more years growing up In Minnesota and I have traveled through here many times! One of my fave tucked away pleasures is Galena!


  2. Sadly, I mislead you. We get lots of snow. These were taken a couple of months ago, when I went with Bill on a trucking trip. In fact we have 6″ of snow coming today. Illinois does have some nice areas, but I love the North Woods the best!


  3. Living in Illinois all of my life I have always looked to other places I wanted to go because I never though Illinois was a pretty place. Then, when I started with photography and honed my appreciation for the simpler things, I began to see the beauty in my own state. We do have a little of everything … and what is more peaceful than a quiet farm scene with animals grazing and “amber waves of grain” as we say. Great picture, ye who claims to not have any photographic talent …
