Fall ride to BurkesGarden... Sept 2012

Each fall Burke's Garden has a festival..
Well with it being 6 miles from us .. We wanted to support our community..

The morning was a little sketchy..With showers.. WE hoped that the sun would push its' way through .. And it finally did ...

Our mountain is just starting to show colour..



My front tree is too.. Just a blush...



A few trees along the way is also showing a light Blush of colour..



Burke's Garden reminds me so much of my Beloved Blue Grass Va ..



These Hex signs have really gotten poplar, these days .. A lot of them are quilting patterns .. Un like the Zook hex ones from the Penn Dutch...



There were still a lot of BIG clouds out...



We knew there would be more colour in the bowl...



Our mountain is about a week behind the B'Garden..



But they still had a lot of Lush green ...



This tree caught my eye ..Taking it on the fly the setting was a little over exposed.. But I still liked the pic..



Some of the roads in the Garden are long and straight...



When we first moved to this area, from BlueGrass ..We use to get hay hereat this farm.. You know I would get an old Barn shot ...



I liked this big ole tree...I know I must take it's pic every time we ride through here..



A nice view...



And ya got to take a shot of The Happy Face !!




More splash of colour..



I thought this was very balanced...



Yuppers my riding mate taking point as always..



When I took this pic .. I knew I had the get a closer shot of that tree...



I give you the tree from the earlier shot...



Another nice shot..



I guess by now, you know I like my landscapes..



Just something about this shot I really liked...



Yes there are Camels in Burkes Garden .. A DR. owns them ...I hear he has paid 100 K for some of them..



Llamas in the garden too..



The lake on the left..I think I see........




Yup it looks like Geese all in the lake..



On the bridge looking down...



We always stop here and walk around some...



Its always a nice shot up through here..



The other side of the bridge..Looking down stream..



Yes the bridge is on 666 ....



Back over the mountain .. They had a fund drive for out local fire dept.. We both gave ... That's JR's gas station .. FYI,they sell 100% gas...
Hey is that ScottyP's twin !!!



I hope you enjoyed the tour through Burke's Garden..
Yuppers we do like in a very cool area....
