    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.

    "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.

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

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

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

    About those "Long Rides With JMS"

    About those "long rides w/JMS", I'm looking to do one of those next Sunday @ some of my old haunts in the Santa Cruz Mtns, if anybody is interested........it'll be fun.........really. Oh Yeah! I've just had an epiphany [No Tahoe BC it's not one of those 2 wheeled disasters you're riding], this route's gonna have everything: technical singletrack, fireroad climbs, a sketchy descent, maybe a little bushwacking, an opportunity to be menaced by some local "color", and beer available at the end.
    Here's my recycled photo from @ here, above Dairy Cr. last year.

    The lower trail is a little chewed up at the top. Nothing a days worth of work can't fix.

    Yes, Summer and Winters suck here but Fall is great! Full moon night rides with no lights are sweet. You have to find the silver lining when the trail is right outside your doorstep
