I spent some time in the Detroit Lakes/Pelican Rapids area over the weekend, and the colors up north are beautiful! I did notice, as I was driving back to St.Cloud in the rain this morning, that they're really starting to pop around here as well.

I drove around the lakes area yesterday, and made my way to Maplewood State Park. The trails were peaceful and even on a cloudy day, the views were so pretty!

And finally made my way back to my sisters home on the lake. There's something really wonderful about a cloudy, crisp October day in Minnesota.
