I Saw Sunday Week 57

For I Saw Sunday Week 57: Week In Review
http://isawsunday.blogspot.com/

For the past two weeks, I have offered photos of the turning colors of Autumn. Early this week, my sister called and asked if I’d like to take a drive up North. I said yes immediately. She’d be doing the driving and I could sit back comfortably and just snap pictures. Which is exactly what I did. We stopped several times. The first time at The Peshtigo River State Forest Camp Grounds.





Then it was back into the car and on to Dave’s Falls, where we had a picnic lunch, then very slowly and carefully followed the winding path through the woods to a foot bridge that crosses the river and gives a wonderful view of the falls. This is one of my very favorite places and the old woman with cane made it all the way. Wow!




Back in the car and a determined effort to get to a small town called Niagra (not the famous one). The highway had a major detour for construction and we bypassed the place we wanted to get to. With some directions obtained from a Travelers Info Center, we managed to get to Niagra and figured the fuss and hassle was well worth it.




One more stop at another campground where wildflowers of a different hue greeted us and we made dinner with the remains in the cooler.



Then back in the car to head home. Yes, I took pics through the windshield, lol and even caught a strange but wonderful sunset.



Altogether, a most incredibly satisfying day. It’s echoes have accompanied me through the week as I slowly sorted through the pictures I had taken. There were a lot of them. But, again, those echoes of deep satisfaction when I would come upon an image I thought only to ever see in a magazine.
