    Speaking of COLD...I did a bit over 165 miles on thursday...low 60's. Went out last night (friday) to ACE Basin for a some sunset shots (have never been there around dusk), and I needed the thermos of coffee I packed with me...beautiful, but colder than thursday by 15 degrees easy...

    You need to show me those roads, Jax, when you come up here. Everything in the ACE Basin as far as side roads has always been gated off.

    Took a ride to Caw Caw County Park...

    After seeing a few of these cypress shoots, I began to feel strangely inadequate :lol3

    This blackwater swamp makes for cool reflection shots. Add a little wind, and it turns out quite nice :nod
