    Photo Assignment: Norcal Fall

    Ok, let's get out there and capture the fall colors and how it feels. We're not east coast so we have to look a little harder but the rewards are there for those who seek it out.

    You can post photos from previous years but please mention that. The object is to get out there.

    We don't have prizes yet but with the bad economy, I'm thinking of rides with celebrities:
    - drinks with baycat, intervals with menso, huckin with beaverbiker, long ride with jms, etc...

    Your actively working on keeping me off my bike this weekend with prizes like those!

    I mean I might have to hike up in the hills with my camera instead of ride up into them with just my phone to take pictures

    Hmmm, I won't ask what route you took to get to the Wrights Station bridge.

    Here I am trekking through some UCSC singletrack. Fall colors slightly muted by the sun.

    Remind me Monday to point you down the wrong trail to the Rangers.

    Check out the 'Passion' forum and check out real fall pictures from Colorado. Aspens are incredible gorgeous.

    It's the sunset viewing bench in Lagoon Valley/Pena Adobe Park. Kinda hard to find. No one rides here anyway

    "long rides with jms"
    From someone who has done dat, it is punishment, not a prize....

    Last fall, well, winter, by a day; things go slow here in SLO town, including the seasons.
    All the oaks have dropped their leaves; this is less than a mile from downtown, perimeter loop, Cerro San Luis.

    Ha, I was going to pick "long ride with jms"! :-)

    A Coe 110 Hell Ride with Plymmer should be added to the list of prizes.

    Hey, is anyone thinking of entering the Mid-Pen photo contest?
