Minnesota is a US State that gets a bad rap due to its’ brutal winters leading it to be affectionately called the “frozen tundra”. However 8 months out of the year it can match some of the most spectacular places on earth with its over 10,000 lakes, numerous rivers including the head waters of the mighty Mississippi, abundance of wild life like the Timber Wolf and great American Black Bear and of course the subject of this piece… the vibrant foliage. While Spring and Summer are filled with dense greenery and colorful flora, it is Autumn or Fall (as it is referred to by Americans) that makes this State a picture of heaven on earth! The following images attempt to capture this beauty that only lasts for a fleeting month.
