St. Croix Scenic Byway





On the first leg of our vacation we drove along the St. Croix Scenic Byway. St. Croix Scenic Byway rambles along the alternatively wild and pastoral St. Croix River, which is also a National Scenic River way.

We drove through many charming historic towns, explored state parks and strolled through many-a-downtowns with character and architecture of decades past.

Even though we were visiting in late October, we caught the tail end of the fall colors. There is something poetic about the changing colors. It seemed as if some one had lit a fire with all these colors vividly shining through!

These beautiful pictures make me dream all the more to spend a few days of Fall in North America so I'd get to enjoy the rich warm colors of Autumn.

Thank you for sharing.
