Fall is here...

As we enter the first week of November, we face the winding-down of the motorcycling season. The air is getting colder, the leaves have fallen from many of the trees and the wooded landscape is beginning to take on the somewhat skeletal appearance of late fall. But it hasn't snowed yet, and there are still a few times to get out and take a short ride.

Such an occasion was enjoyed by me last week, when unexpected warm temperatures and blue skies beckoned. I took the Victory out to Pittsfield and, on my way back on some roads I am only slightly familiar with, pulled over when I spotted this location.



It looked like a fine spot to stop and eat my lunch... and it was. -- PL

I think that the beavers in that pond were mad about no Forever War too, that's why they chewed those trees down...makes it easier to see the water now though.

This may sound goofy, but what's on the other side of the barrier? Is it a steep drop or a rolling hill?

That barrier is the dam which made this reservoir, so on the other side it drops off a bit, but nothing too extreme. -- PL
