Welcome to Galena, Illinois

As the sky turns orange and the sun sets behind the Mississippi River, a hot air balloon slowly rises into the air over Galena, Illinois. Expansive views of the hilly landscape come into focus, with church steeples popping out above the tree line and scenic rivers and lakes appearing in the distance welcome you to all that is Galena Country.
