Fall on Beauty Mountain......

from flickr user John Sikkila
This amazing tunnel of fall color makes me want to go for a long weekend drive through the furthest reaches of Minnesota and simply explore our state. This particular area is one of those hidden gems that only the locals (and the photographer who captured this photo) know about. A lonely, tree-lined gravel road just whispering "come find me" is what this photo says to me.

The photographer says: Not even close to a "mountain" but the locals...for some reason...have always called it that.....A hill at the most...image from northern Minnesota (Beauty Lake area).....Taken last weekend..the wind has blown strong since and a good percentage of the colored leaves have fallen...
