We are lucky this year with what seems like an extended autumn and the color surrounding Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis is still striking. Take a break from the office when possible this week and soak up the final colorful and warm autumn days before we face bleak, leafless days for months to come.

A cool morning with fog hanging over the nearly glassy water of a lake at Myre-Big Isalnd State Park near Albert Lea, MN with a shoreline blanketed in brilliant orange trees. Catch the last scenes like this in the coming days because we all know that autumn's splendor is fleeting and certainly won't last forever.

Grain Elevator - Sleepy Eye, MN

Farmers Elevator Co. - Sleepy Eye, MN

Grain elevators like this one in Sleepy Eye, MN are a dying breed. No longer do their overhead storage bins constructed from lumber laid on its wide dimension hold enough grain to be viable. Instead, modern grain elevators consist of a row of steel grain bins of towering concrete silos connected by ultra-fast grain legs which allow farmers to unload a semi truck full of corn or soybeans in a couple minutes. These older structures are often times demolished as large cooperatives swoop in and expand with modern facilities to stay competitive and provide faster service to today's large-scale farmers. If you ever get a chance to see the inner workings of a grain elevator like the one in this photo, do it because the interior is amazing -- especially when you consider that many of these structures are nearly 100 years old.
