Fall colors on the banks of Mirror Lake, WI

During the opening scene of the upcoming Lyric Arts production of The Spitfire Grill, the local sheriff asks new arrival Percy (a recently released ex-convict) why she's come to the small town of Gilead.  She hesitantly reaches into her pocket and withdraws a carefully folded piece of paper.  It's a picture she cut from an old travel book that was donated to the prison library.  The caption reads "Autumn colors along Copper Creek."  It's beauty has inspired her to find a quiet place to start again.
