Scouting Ride for Fall Colors

In order to give Brigitta, my '87 BMW R80 Airhead Beemer some exercise and also check out the conditions for Fall Colors in the DTC and South Denver area, we rode out a bit after 9AM into some cool and sunny riding conditions.

Fall riding can be quite nice, it's not hot, it's not cold and when the sun is out, it's almost as great as riding in snowy conditions with the sun out.

The leaves on the deciduous trees are starting to turn with the incoming Fall weather but they weren't quite there yet for pictures.  The peak should happen in the next week or so I think.

Here's a couple of pics of the entrance to Westlands Park in the DTC (Denver Tech Center).

 That's Mount Evans in the distance.

About 55 miles of city driving, and only one dumb cager not paying attention to her lane positioning.

Got home before lunch, hopefully we'll have better Fall coloring by next weekend.

That archway frames the mountains pretty well. If the sun moved they could've made a clock...

Colours peaked here this weekend but are quickly being brought to an end by wind, rain and now snow. Fall is perfect for riding, too bad the season isn't a bit longer (for those of us who don't want to be caught out in the snow.)

That arch makes the perfect frame for the mountains and bike. Good eye.

RichardM, it's one of my usual spots for pics when the mountains are visible from the metro area.

VStar Lady, snow? I'm hoping we get some this week.

Trobairitz, thanks.
