    The last week has been awesome here too, with most of the
    thanksgiving 3 day weekend in the 70's with hardly a wispy cloud in the sky.

    i'm quite sure mother nature will make us suffer any time now...

    the only time i miss living out east is now. oh my gosh those images do not look real.

    gotta start planning my cross new england trip, but i am afraid it will be a little colder by the time i get there.

    wow!

    I agree, I do miss fall in the Northeast, but it is quite nice here in Oregon as well, just not as colorful and missing the colonial homes.

    Thread drift: Speaking of Northeast and Northwest comparisons, after my recent trip to Boston, I've come the conclusion that the favorite crustacean of my youth, the lobster, is just not quite as wonderful as my current favorite, Pacific NW dungeness crab, which to my palate is sweeter. But we get our Pac. NW butts kicked on clams, no contest. Manilas are fine and all but.... I rate it a toss up on oysters - I had a fine selection from Mass. and Nova Scotia at the B&G Oyster Bar, but they had some fine ones from Washington on the menu as well.

    I don't know what was better today - Viewing the sky lighten at sunrise over the Blue Hills from my saddle, or seeing the reds and oranges of sunset reflecting off the bottoms of the scattered purple clouds at sunset.

    The best fall days are the best kind of days.
    GO!

    No way. I had Oysters in the San Juans last summer. They were like the Fillet Mignon of shell fish. I still dream of those beauties.

    I really miss fall in New York and New England. The leaves out here are more inclined to fall to the ground and turn to a wet mush.

    Thanks for the shots, Steve. I've never experienced fall in the NE. Our Pac NW clams get their butts kicked by NE clams? I find that hard to believe but look forward to testing it.

    I was out this afternoon with 2 freinds for a 22 mile ride through the North Shore (MA) towns of Hamilton, Danvers, Topsfield, Ipswich, and Wenham.

    Steve's pictures just about say it all.

    It's that time in NEw England that is just so special. Crisp air, that autumn smell of wet leaves, the occassional fireplace/wood stove, beautiful foliage (for about 1 more week), and that sort of special feeling you get when it's not too cold but you need that 1 extra layer.

    And to top it off, it's cross season.

    It just doesn't get much better.

    I wouldn't go that far. My mailbox disappeared four times last year.

    I don't like the weather. My asthma starts at 55 degrees. 60s is fine by me, but 55 and below means I have to use the disc twice a day instead of once.

    75 degrees and no wind or humidity. June. Perfect.

    those images make me miss fall, as most of those here know it. it was 96 here today, but gorgeous with a light wind and not a cloud in the sky. the mornings are great too, it was 65 and gorgeous. i love fall in phoenix, it's like spring everywhere else.

    You have a good eye, you should either do more of it or at least post more of it.
