Late September was the Perfect time to visit Nauvoo. The temperatures were pleasant and the weather was calm. Since Nauvoo is a small town off the beaten path when you go there in the off season it is quiet and peaceful and uncrowded. I had hoped for some fall color, but there wasn't much yet. However, the soybean fields were turning golden and that was beautiful.
When I was a kid I used to think farm fields were booooooring. I was so wrong.
I love this picture of Fish walking along a quiet road on the outskirts of Nauvoo just after sunset next to fields of tall, ripe corn.
