We have had the nicest autumn with beautiful weather and lovely scenery. The above pictures were taken this past Sunday. In the top picture , in the background you can see the Julian Dubuque Bridge which crosses the Mississippi River from Illinois into Iowa. To the left of the bridge is the city of Dubuque. In the bottom picture you can see part our farm and woodlands and in the background the Mississippi River is visible. The views are seen from our refectory.
