A small pond reflects fall leaf color Wednesday, Sept. 29, 2021, on Beauty Lake Road in the Pillsbury State Forest. For hikers and photographers, remember the fall hunting seasons have begun so wear something that will distinguish you from the foliage.

I was raised on a farm in western Minnesota where I participated in 4-H, high school sports, and everything that farm kids do for fun after chores. Graduated from Ridgewater Community College with an AA degree and my first taste of newspapering. I worked a summer on the Ortonville Independent as a reporter and photographer.
