It's "Indian Summer" here in Wisconsin. (Definition: mid to late Fall, much warmer than normal temperatures—it's been 70° here yesterday and today—and after the first killing frost.) Wisconsin isn't a dramatic state in terms of topography, with the exception of a small patch in the middle of the state that the glaciers missed, but it can be quietly beautiful, mainly because of its tawny golden greens and russet colors as the deciduous leaves desiccate.
You'll have to sort of imagine what these three pictures of Lulu in the park look like a lot larger; they're not really meant to be seen small.
