Wish I could post some.. unfortunately the leaves are all gone here, and I spent the

time when they were changing at work and cutting wood! At least I was out enjoying it,

but no good pictures to show for this year.

I took the Scout instead of the TW this weekend, but either would have been perfect for the fun we had in the woods












Today's storm should wipe out the rest of the leaves

It is




The Scout is the TDub equivalent in UTV's. It's a cheap 2wd, single axle, geared low, 150cc, and can easily pull a 5000lb boat around the yard. It barely uses any gas, is not that comfortable, but it is a utility vehicle, after all!



I can haul about 500lbs of firewood back up the ridge from the creek bottom, when the cooler is empty




And the grand-dog loves to ride in the bed.

I've been waiting to get out for an autumn ride and though this wasn't a real "expedition", I was glad I took the camera. It was a beautiful day, sunny and temps in the high 60's. These shots were taken on a corner where a farmer (on one of the too quickly disappearing farms around here) had planted what is probably a crop of feed corn. The cornfield and the adjacent cottonwood trees begged for a few photographs and I was happy to oblige. Autumn is absolutely my favorite season and lasts far too short. This winter when the TW is put away, I'll be looking fondly at these shots and wishing I could turn back the calendar a few months. Enjoy...!

Awesome Fall photos! If there was ever a book on TW's there is a few in there that could be the cover. Riding in the Fall time is bitter sweet as you know the season is coming to an end yet it is such an excellent time of year for riding. My TW is parked for the year, all the trails have snow on them here in Breckenridge and icy spots exist on the roads. Thanks for the photos!!!

The first picture is near the top of Highway 9. There are a few yellow trees around but most are green. Locals will recognize the curve.









I was done for the day and on my way home when I spotted this tree.









Something this red think poison oak and that is what it is.







When the oranges on the orange tree get ripe I will take a picture of that. It can be impressive!

Resurrected from the dead. Hey, it's Halloween month don't-cha-know.

From a quick after-work ride in the old back 40. Not quite retired yet so this is my "during the week" riding area still.

Idaho fall colors...burnt and not burnt!

Proceed with caution. With the area void of vegetation, you can see the bomb craters of Badger Cluster Bombs from OAF (Oregon Air Force) bombing missions


More OAF bomb craters (aka badger holes)

Those were some great fall color pictures! I'd brave the cooler, ok cold, temperatures to ride down there again. And yes, I think the will be more "freedom" trips. Isn't there some commercial which says, "your free to move about the country". Maybe not but it sounds good. :p

Bring Wifey and Wilbur the Pink Wonder Bike next time. Can't be any colder than Iceland where she was on your last Sweetwater Ride. Colors are still changing at lower, warmer elevations.

Our aspens appear in isolated pockets where snowmelt persists later into the year. That makes these gems pleasant little moist micro-climates to contrast with the surrounding terrain.

Your to late for my area. Winds have blown what little color we have left off the trees. Could have gotten some snow pictures couple days ago.

Sunday was my first day off in a month and also the first of a select few "Fall Foliage Runs" I do annually. This one was with the Ramapo Motorcycle Club and originated out of Rhodes Tavern North in Sloatsburg, N.Y.
Right by 7 Lakes Drive and Harriman State Park/Bear Mountain.

I don't normally ride (or should I say Pilot) the Ural to these events but there were 3 other sidecars in the mix so... whatever.
No matter how far north or into the scenic valleys and mountains we rode we saw nary a tree with leaves changing at all. Perhaps because we have been having high 70's and into the 80's humid weather up until 4-5 days ago? I love Summer but it's time to move on.
Sunday was a 40's-50's day and the crisp Fall weather is finally here. But it'll be a few more weeks before we notice it in stunning colors like you guys are having.

10 hours of riding in 2 minutes:
