Color of Fall - Taylors Falls

Last year, we did not have chances to see the peak color due to a sudden heavy rain. This Saturday, we went to the interstate state park in Taylors Falls, which is adjacent to St. Croix in Wisconsin. It is only one hour driving distance, taking 94 east and then 95 noth. We did not stop at Stillwater, which we visited last year with many classmates. When you have cars, some places seem to be closer than you imaged.

Interstate state park. There are a lot of potholes due to glacier erosion long time ago.

We came back around 3pm. Those pictures speak for themselves.

Then in the evening, Iron Chef Naoki had a party for his finance group.

The main dish, I skip the process, but it's quite delicious. Moreover, he has a lot of wine.....


Hope Naoki could get along well with ALL his neighbors...We had two police visited us during the party.
Naoki really likes Jazz. It is the only art in the US, he said.
Peace!!

你們那裡果然有比較冷,楓葉也紅的比我們快耶!今天早上看Weather Channel,說你們那裡已經開始下雪了?真的還假的?

我現在還在密西根,不過今年年底就要回台灣了。豆皮要不要密西根小熊?我可以趁回台灣前寄一隻給妳喔!:)

哈囉豆皮&Kambric:

嗚嗚!終於有朋友願意考慮來安娜堡一逛,真是相當感動啊!希望可以招待到你們!

但我要先來update一下我們目前感恩節的狀況。我們11/23-26的感恩節假期中,其中的兩天半會前往Indiana,所以人不在安娜堡,但目前還沒確定會是11/22-24, 23-25或是24-26就是了。

Anyway,如果時間上不湊巧的話,我還是相當樂意寄給豆皮一隻小熊的喔!請將郵寄的地址email到我信箱即可啦!:)
