The death of summer. Moonlit pic at Marmot Pass very early Sunday morning. It seems like every time I leave the tent body at home and just take the fly and foot print I end up getting snowed on.

Since I fly up here and back I don't get to bring the motorcycle too often. I keep a bicycle here to keep up the appearance of being healthy.

This past Sunday I got out for little ride up the Centennial Trail Snohomish.

That's probably spelled wrong but it has been a long day,

Two shots from the ride. I was cold and tired. Sky turned flat.



In places the leaves obscured the path to a depth of a few inches. They were a little slick if I'd been unwise enough to attempt any quick moves. Fortunately my state of fitness precluded any such nonsense.



And a bug, I was cold and surprised to see anything like this wandering around.


I do really enjoy my time in this place. I've known people who moved here to work and left after a year complaining of the weather and rain, and such. I guess the green will eventually get to me and I'll begin yearning for gray, and brown, but for now I'm really digging the color show.

I grew up in Colorado so got used to golds and reds in the fall,

IT was cold and overcast this morning here in Mukilteo, but then cleared so I went bicycle riding. I got cold after an hour so stopped. No pictures because it is boring. I had my cameras along, I just was busy moving to stay warm.
Then I did my laundry and cleaned up. Got in the rental car and headed off to the book store. Saw some nimrod ride by on a motorcycle wearing shorts!
Made me colder. I turned up the heater in the car.

Next trip is after turkey day. Should be really cold by then unless this global warming thing is for real. At any rate I figure I'm safe leaving the sunscreen at home.

Had to ride up to see some fallen tree's.
No tree's over the road from last night's
wind storm. So all I could do was take a
pic of Edison, out here some where.



That long straight stretch is Chuckanut Dr.

Metolious River

I took the 42 year old Trail 90 out for a morning ride Monday. Lake Billy Chinook, along the Metolious River to the end of the road. Stopped by the balancing rocks.

Puke And when its not gloomy with rain, its gloomy with SNOW...........

Howdy All,

When it snows, they never plow the roads, the sun never shines, it just miserable to live here................... These were taken on FSR 18, 10-18-2010 Chris on his dirt bike, Cob on the Ural.






At this point it was too much for the Ural clutch we turned around.




And to top it off you have to clean the darn snow out of the spokes.


It really sucks to live here, don't even waste your money coming to visit.
