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.

Pine trees are still green.
Famous boat tour....or the only place to go..

We were in the front row.
Someone showing his butt.....
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.
