On my most recent trip to Minnesota, it was a very rainy day. We stopped by the Mississippi rest stop to stretch our legs and enjoy the view. The view of the river isn't really as impressive in that area, so I wandered around and came upon this view of the tree-covered bluffs. They always impress me (probably because I've spent most of my life in plain, flat Illinois), but that day they stunned me in a different way. I don't want to describe it in words because every time I try it comes out sounding so much less majestic than it actually looked. I've attached a picture, but it's not the best one and can't quite capture the full effect. It's just a glimpse into that ineffable moment of beauty.
