    That must suck to be colorblind! I'm sorry. Suffice it to say it is stunning. Every year it's just amazing to me, and it's been 27 years.

    WOW!

    That is just awsome!
    My mother would love that, she has allways loved the fall colors. I remember takeing trips out to the hills when I was younger and lived in Colo. I have to admit, seeing the Aspens changeing colors in the fall really takes me back.

    I have a Aspen in my front yard, the color change only lasts for a week or two, but it's pretty cool. I get kinda bummed to see it bare so quickly.

    In the fall, I make a point of going out EVERY weekend with my hounds, I say it's for "them", but you know....


    BTW, don't say anything, - you know, me being a guy and all. I'm not supposed to notice things like that..

    CK5'ers are ALWAYS welcome at our place. We have a large, level lot and then after the fire pit and some very, very large pines is a slope down to the river. Fishin', some trails nearby... and all the snow you can haul away (FREE) for about 5-6 months of the year. Really I'm thinking of having a gathering up here next summer and inviting people to camp/wheel here. It would be fun! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    What did you do to your dog??? LOL. I updated my site today and also put pics back on of my animals (About Us) page, scroll to the bottom.
    Oh yeah I won't tell anyone you like pretty stuff. NO one will know /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif . I have to take more pics for uglychevy383 tomorrow. Will post them Sunday probably, since we'll be out of town tomorrow. I mowed the lawn yesterday and noticed something else very cool. Some kind of leafy vine has grown up outside a bedroom window and it was <font color="red"> red
    </font color> . Of course with the wind we've had today, it's bare now but it was neat.

    I love Wisconsin falls. Down in Madison the colors are only beginning to change, but I know up north the colors are starting to peak.
    Your property looks great. But, you've got to stop posting pics of it...it makes me anxious to get back up north. I have a cabin in the Crivitz/Marinette area where I go as many times as possible in the fall to go hunting. For those that aren't hunters, it's hard to understand why someone would want to spend countless hours in the woods, waiting to see a deer. All I can say to that is...you don't even know. Northern Wisconsin, fall colors, brisk morning, peace and quiet, and doing what I love to do the most...nothing can top it. It's the only place where one can gather his/her sanity and break away from this hectic world.

    It's weird how it's so diffrent back east. Out hear we get all the colors in the summer and in the winter everything turns green from all the rain.

    Yeah, it's right near the pipeline. The cabin is probably 20 minutes away from it. I actually end up passing hwy W (where pipeline is) on the way to hwy X (where cabin is). Which brings me to a tech question. Could someone explain to me why my truck pulls severly to the left at hwy W...but gets better once I pass it. Is my truck maybe telling me I should turn? I think so.

    I do believe you nailed that one right on the head /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    That place is addictive, I tell you! Good thing there are a couple of hours between us and there, or we'd definitely be in the poor house replacing parts.

    Oh, dang, I can't believe I forgot to say this....I'm going to the cabin this coming weekend (10/11-10/13) for some bow-hunting/ grouse hunting. Won't be taking my truck though. Will be going up in my pop's '97 chevy sub. Guess no stopping at the pipeline for some off-the-road-romping this time.
