So Happy Together

Sparks of romance. Have you experienced them lately, perhaps while holding hands with your plus-one?

Earlier this month, our amazing photographer friend Elizabeth_after60 on Instagram visited 142C to take in the October vistas and she captured these amazing images of her Lutsen Mountain gondola adventure for us to enjoy. Thank you, Elizabeth, for sharing!
