Patchwork of Colors

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 8 November 2018 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Known mostly for a thriving snow skiing resort, this view was taken at Chestnut Mountain Resort in Galena, Illinois near one of their ski slopes where you meet the Mississippi River at the bottom. This time of year, there were hardly any people staying at the lodge.
