It was time for our annual Fall Color Tour,  and go to Governor Dodge State  Park for the first time together.  It’s close to Dodgeville, where we went after visiting here.   The colors were near peak and quite beautiful.  we also were there to see two attractions that are there, Stephen’s Falls and the Rock Spring House .  We had a drought last summer so the falls were greatly diminished 😦

We returned spring 2014, what a difference in the falls. Plenty of water was flowing this time. The waterfall was nice enough to pose for a selfie with us 🙂

This time, we went up the hill above the Spring House and discovered more that we didn’t see before. The falls were named after a farm family that once lived here, the Stephens.

We had a great visit here, This is a very pretty park, especially in fall. Plenty of hiking trails to explore too.
