Default Peepin', Gopher (and Badger) Style

October reminds us of why we choose to live in the upper midwest: warm days, cool nights, and an absolute explosion of color. We are pretty close to peak color, so Andi and I used date night to do some aerial leaf peepin' and grab dinner at the diner at KEAU. The golden hour yielded some nice light for imagery..........

I'll let the pics tell the story somewhere over Minnesconsin:




















May you all have a healthy glow this Halloween season! - Pete and Andi

Wow! Great Photos, Pete. Beautiful colors and magical countryside. Awe-inspiring, really; particularly from altitude. Thanks for posting!

Recon flights here in STL show color is coming. I am not expecting it to be as great as we have had the last couple years. Thanks for the great pictures and gives me the time table for when we will peak here.

Fantastic, I love the Minnesconsin area in the summer and more so in the early fall, then I think about 3 months from now and decide again not to leave for north of Georippiama after October.

Those are awesome shots, though, makes me want to work less and spend more time on the ship, but the first is required for the second to happen.
