Fall Foliage pictures from Maine

Hi all,

This is my first post on ADVrider.com. I am from Gardiner Maine and ride an 07 Kawi Nomad and an 08 Honda CRF 230L, I figured I'd introduce myself and post a few pictures.


Since the riding season is coming to an end too soon up here in Maine, I decided to ride around and take a few pictures of the foliage up here which is at peak.

Saturday 10/6 - pushing 70 degrees.



This was out in Whitefield Maine. Here is that farm beyond by bike zoomed in.



Unfortunately, I had the camera set for bright sun and it was overcast so the pics look almost black and white.

Today I took the little prostate tickler out for a little spin. It was in the mid 50's and I should have worn my chaps!

Lonely road.



Two farms down in the valley.



Another



Happy cows in the valley.



Down the road in the valley



Downtown Richmond Maine

Down River



Up River



Same spot zoomed to the drawbridge.



The little prostate tickler



1.9 acres of water frontage - What! I'm in.



your view to the water.



I you are interested



This is at the Northern most point of Merrymeeting Bay where the Kennebec River dumps into the bay.




This bay is the number 2 estuary (behind Chesapeake Bay) for migrating birds and is extremely important to the east coast.

More info on Wikipedia.

Merrymeeting Bay - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The view across the river.



The road out



Whatever you do don't eat the red mushrooms



This is down the road a piece in Bowdoinham. Looking back up North toward that land that was for sale.



Look at this little skiff. I think it's actually smaller than my Honda.



The one lane bridge from which I took the pic of the skiff.



The house on the opposite point.

Thanks Cliff, If both days were nice and sunny with blue sky, the pics would have come out much better. Well that and if I was actually a good photographer. Its really weird how the zoom messes up the perspective of the shot of the two farms in the valley It makes it look much steeper and shorter than it really is.

I hope you get your chance to ride in Maine. Its a beautiful state as I am sure Mississippi is.
