This is what early autumn in northern 'sconsin looked like from my saddle today.
Trust me, getting that shot wasn't as easy as it looks. Note the buggy windshield--it was spotlessly clean about a half hour before I took this. (And yes, I *was* poking along at 40, for a change.)
This is a little bit better look at the colors of the Flambeau River state forest. It was so pretty, and the newsy-types are saying that peak colors are still over a week away.
