To all members of this group:
Thank you. Your photography really helps us promote our region as not only a beautiful place to live but a great getaway escape in the Midwest.

Please feel free to post as many of your photos as you like. Also, we are not just looking for photos of beautiful places but also people doing things in beautiful places. :-) We are promoting tourism here so lifestyle is important.

Thanks for your help!
