    I live just north of Dubuque and have been there many times. Your picture is beautiful. Have you ever taken any pictures at Balltown? Great view there. You can see the fog on the Mississippi there.

    Well, this is news to me. I didn't know there was a Pike's Peak in Iowa, and I live in Iowa! I'm going to have to check it out!

    That's a great picture, thank you. Is it taken from Pike's Peak or is that the Peak opposite? I would never imagine this landscape.

    Yes, we drove thru Balltown the same day. The view there is just as pretty as Pike's Peak. The fall colors are amazingthis year.
