For all the beautiful fall colors I saw in the past two days driving to and from Mankato, the only photo I had time to take was this one of the town square in Hutchinson. Hutchinson is a beautiful town just west of the Twin Cities. The building in the background is the library. The town square reminds me of the town squares in Mexico. Every town should have one, for they are beautiful spaces.

What made this better is that the three sides of the square other than the library were lined with thriving storefronts, including a coffee shop which served me a wonderful white chocolate mocha.
