This week I had a very enjoyable opportunity to spend a day and a half with 70 educators at Eagle Ridge resort in northwest Illinois, very close to the Mississippi River. Here are a few of the photographic highlights of the trip, which included an hour of shopping Wednesday afternoon in picturesque Galena. These photos and a few more are included in a new Flickr set I uploaded tonight.
