The autumn colors started to show on our last day in South Wisconsin ,I was looking at this tree for a few days and one morning it was totally red….we are moving South so I do not know if the foliage will be there in October-lets hope it will.
We stopped for 3 days in Garden Prairie jus out of Rockford to meet friends and visit the most beautiful Japanese Gardens I have ever seen.
The C.G was occupied only by Seasonal campers and most of them were not there,it looked more like a nice RV storage place but as we were with friends it was OK with us,the feeling of the end of the season was in the air as we continued to enjoy every minute as much as we could.
The sunsets were just great as we set outside enjoying a meal at the end of the day…
The weather was just great ,sunny ,clear , cool so adding colors and smells that came with the weather changes made it very nice.
The Japanese Gardens are a gem in Rockford IL
Walking the paths we could feel the tranquility in every corner of the garden and were very happy to learn a lot from Dave one of the gardens volunteer group about the structure of the place that gave us an extra pleasure understanding the Japanese culture reflected in every corner in the garden.
A visit to the Harley Davidson show room following an “old” Ice cream soda parlor were a perfect way to end this great day.
Moving tomorrow to Starved Rock S.P IL (No WiFi) where we will spend 5-6 days hiking all over….
Thank you for visiting.
