Fall Colors and Fun in the Communist State

Quick hundred mile loop on some fun and familiar roads today.

Delightful 75 degrees and no wind.

Passed by a big lake, some small streams, high speed roads and low speed roads, and even ran across some wild turkey's.

It's wild out there...I'll tell ya.

Sorry Fastoman - I was going to correct the spelling of "thnaks" to "thanks", and somehow I "pooched".

Sorry.

Still riding here in most-western Canuckistan, was in the 50s though I rode to Whistler which is elevation 2,000 ft. Big difference in temp at that height and once the sun goes down there its all hands on deck. Nice sunny day but rain coming which means snow for skiing and snowshoeing!

South east to Pine Flat Lake and on up to Trimmer. Then north west thru Burrough Valley and back home.

Fun ride and zero traffic.

That moniker is courtesy of Reverend Jerry Falwell,what an entertainer! He was going on about the "Evil Empire" and he dubbed us "Soviet Canuckistan".

That almost ruins it for me... Sometimes not knowing from where a moniker arose is better. Lol.
