A bike ride on the most gorgeous day we've had so far

I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. Rail Trail in Bennington NH - gorgeous warm fall day. Lots of energy. Feeling great. I think you can click to enlarge







A surprise on the trail - we smelled them before we saw them. They hooted and chased us - thank goodness they were enclosed.

Perfect.

All the rain you guys had in the spring is going to pay off in spades for the fall colors you're(I am) about to receive! You can already see it in the distance...wow.
And I love the marsh shot. I just have a thing for marshes.
Thanks for the ride beside you Mim ;)

Well naturally one leaves one's tractor out in the elements and parks one's plane in the shed! Gorgeous photos. Love the old railway tracks, really stunning.

Gorgeous day on display here. I can see the fall color creeping into the forest. Maybe those pigs are just fans of cyclists.

I can't wait to see the colors in a few weeks!
We haven't started turning here-it's usually closer to November. I hope our rainfalls pay off in great color too!

Well, it's hard if I had to pick just one but if I had to boy I love that little stream. Absolutely gorgeous. Love seeing your part of the world. I love how they left the rail tracks there and made the bike path next to it.
Here they took everything up and made the whole thing bike and snow mobile. I like seeing the tracks. :)Bea

Ahhh, Fall! Your photos are awesome and crisp! And we used to buy hay from a pig farmer--smell is right!

Sweet Mim, can you come and move in right around the corner. Can you come and live by me, because there is something about you that I know I love.

I received a beautiful bouquet of flowers today. The most beautiful bouquet I have ever received.

Mim, I love that you are so kind to think of me and my family at this time.

We are heartbroken, and I always will be.

And in that heartbreak your flowers made me feel happy.

Thank you.

Love Renee xoxxo

Yup, yup, yup I love that stream picture. I think it's the richness of the blue of the water in contrast to the blue of the sky and then that little bit of deep red in the bushes.
This is something I would want to paint in the middle of winter.
Just gorgeous. :)Bea
