Lola's first trip to the headwaters...
Lola made her long-awaited first trip to the headwaters of the Mississippi River today. We figured that it was about time to take her to a state park and decided Itasca was ideal for her inaugural visit. (Itasca also was where Ray and I went to celebrate the day we found out we were expecting.)
Well, as our luck would have it, there was a wedding taking place literally in the waters at the headwaters and a crowd of about a hundred were gathered around the riverside. We couldn't really wait for the wedding to end as Lola was less than thrilled with the experience. We took a few quick pictures along the shore of Lake Itasca and a few further down along the Mississippi. As you can see, it was a beautiful fall day -- the leaves are just breathtaking up here.
Just thought I would share.
