colors great. temps in 60s air clear as a bell... great for breathing.
wonderful riding now.
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 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 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.
