8-21-09 Galena IL

After the Didgeridoo workshop in Sinsinawa, Wisconsin, we drove back to Galena, Illinois for the night. We stayed in the DeSoto House on Main Street. This is such a charming "Victorian" town... takes you back in time.

Note the horse in the window of the lower right pix! (A reminder to those of you who are new to my blog... you can left click on the picture to enlarge it, then left click on the blue "Back Arrow" in the upper left hand corner to return to the blog.)

We drove down IL-84 past the Mississippi Palisades...
a magnificent view that my DH had not yet seen so I wanted to share it with him.
Upon our return home, our DD was just finishing loading up her car to move back to graduate school, so we got to say good-bye to her and her DH. The house will seem strangely quiet for a while with her gone! Love you guys!


  1. That last photo is beautiful. Not sure if you doctored it or if the colors are that gorgeous. Either way it is perfect!

  2. The colors ARE that gorgeous!!! It was an overcast, cloudy, damp day and the greens just popped! The Mississippi Palisades always tempt me to pull my camera out of my purse and take a few shots... I find that nature rarely disappoints.

  3. Those are great pictures! Glad to see you enjoyed your time here in Galena and Jo Daviess County. Hope you can visit again. From your friendly hosts for visitor information, the Galena/Jo Daviess County Convention and Visitors Bureau
