Galena, Illinois

After Thanksgiving this year, we took an opportunity to make a rather spontaneous trip to Galena Illinois. Galena is a quaint river town that is nestled among rolling hills, with many historic 19th century buildings. All this combined with a light dusting of early winter snow provided a bunch of photo opportunities. I’ve included one of the home of Ulysses.S. Grant. His presence is felt throughout the town. If you’re ever in the area, it’s worth a stop. The tour of Grant’s home was a well worth the suggested $5 donation. I hope you enjoy this sampling of images from our visit.
