In early November, I whisked Swede away to the exciting metropolis of Dubuque, Iowa for an overnight getaway. Along the way, we stopped at Apple River Canyon state park to hike and be one with the autumnal foliage. Because if ever there is a place to be one with the resplendent autumn, it is the middle of BFE Illinois/Iowa.
I wish there was an easy way to tell you how welcomed the weekend was, but I think it’s better if I show rather than tell.
Let’s be honest: It’s not a Swede/McPolish trip without a stop at a distillery.
