A typical autumn view for me with my bike.

AM-JKLVLnXjBxRYNbBAPlFSvr3lPd_wxgFfAp0faS5oTMa2rA5C97HvIfaKttP072Kthx9PzwLmDXUUpk4wyq7SdZ9ZpAiZDhcmXGsraFnss4yC8dgyf3rBTa80ZzzHGEuc9-kXc92f-dI0JpRS_KI70gUN8CQ=w1072-h955-no


It isn't usually against the wood stack, but we had a delivery of building materials.

Woo hoo, finally got out for a fall ride. It was only 5°canadian (40° in freedom units) with a big pile of wind. See how I suffer for you guys? But I got the goods. Colors aren't as poppin' as they could be, the big wind pulled down a lot of the red and dead stuff.

Sugar maple, kinda like the fall color diva, gets all the hype,

To me, this is the fall trifecta: maple, sumac and wild grapes. Sumac actually shines brighter than the maple, but it's smaller, and the leaves stay for shorter time. Also, the fuzzy berry things can be brewed into a tea which tastes remarkably like lemonade

Really not catching the colors as they appear, that sumac is so orange, with the red berry clusters

Let's call this series "You Aren't Seeing What I'm Seeing"

"What is the digital equivalent of lovely, he wondered. What are the digits that encode beauty, the number-fingers that enclose, transform, transmit, decode, and somehow, in the process, fail to trap or choke the soul of it. Not because of the technology, but in spite if it, beauty, that ghost, that treasure, passes undiminished through the new machines."
Salman Rushdie

Some more from yesterday's ride. No filters, no editing other than to crop

The Canadian kids might know what this one means:

That stack of lumber, one of several in the park is a huge sign that autumn has arrived. Anyone care to venture a guess what it is for?

A rail trail two-fer this week: 20.5 miles on our Elk River Trail on Monday, and 32 miles on the North Bend Trail Friday. Yesterday it was 26F, dark, and foggy when I started, but turned into a beautiful, sunny day that was still noticeably chilly by the time I got back to the car. The western end of the NB Trail passes a lot of wooded residential areas, and it's a popular trail, yet I had the trail to myself; no hikers or bikers to be seen all morning.
