Below are some of the pictures that I took today and I really need to get serious about getting a helmet cam so that I won't miss those beautiful pictures just because there is no place to safely pull over and stop for a picture. We saw some really spectacular fall colors today which made the ride well worth taking. I think we all enjoyed the ride today even though it was an extremely long one and we're all worn out and have declared tomorrow a day of rest.

and they seemed to all have the same idea as us...
to stop and eat at the State Park buffet.

to Buckhorn today.

We often stay at the lodges because there is so much
more to do than staying in a motel...and the scenery is

and later someone with a bike like mine made it a point
to stop and talk to me about my bike.

Winter will be here before we know it so we are trying to take advantage of these beautiful fall days to ride. It's supposed to rain tomorrow and the temperature is supposed to cool down. Today it reached 80 degrees and it got a bit hotter when we drove right through a forest fire. Luckily the fires were almost out and all that we encountered was lots of smoke and smoldering timbers on both sides of the road. We passed by it quickly and were soon out of the smoke.
I hope that your day was as enjoyable and as eventful as ours. We had a very good day spent with family....what could be better?
I know......more family.
