We had an end of October afternoon at 70 most wonderful degrees. I managed an early and productive morning, cutting that priority project a bit shorter than I would have had we been living with a more normal almost-November day's weather.
Conditions were near magical; the strong SW wind made distant valley views almost gauzy with the warmer and wetter air.
Stopped for coffee at the Co-Op, just happened to grab this photo when there weren't trucks and wagons dumping corn.
The last time I was here, Hootie, Eric and Ben were along......way too long ago. I've got to make sure this is a more frequent destination.
On gravel here, my road ahead down in the dip and climbing the corner on the other side of the valley.
Another distant corner in my path........
From the far east end of Blank Hill Road......
What kind of a magnificent afternoon would it be without a Rum Cherry??
Time to get home....on the Minnesota side of the river.
Not sure if I'll get out again this weekend or not. November 6 is the MN Swan Ride and it's mandatory that I make that one.
