Talking Fall Colors - Northern New Brunswick

Northern New Brunswick - Canada - I rode by DR650 from the rolling hills of Grand Falls to the small mountains sheltering the village of Riley Brook located on the scenic Tobique River.

This being my first ride report, I just wanted to share these images with those individuals from other corners of the world who do not benefit from Mother Mature's show of Colors. Yes, before get blanketed with snow, we enjoy this scenery:














































Just imagine, peak season is in a few weeks! Sorry about the haziness in the background, but it was early and the morning mist hadn't lifted at that point. I hope you enjoyed my report.

Beautiful pics of the east!

"Begin Hijack"

If you happen to live on the "wet" west coast, "Fall" season means that we finally get enough rain to re-open our riding areas and seeing snow on the ground for more than 24 hours is an oddity.

"End Hijack"

Thanks everyone! I hope to get more pics next weekend if we can stay put long enough to take a picture. I will be travelling with a group of riders (10 or so).

Great shots. It'll be another couple of weeks til we hit that point around here. It's my favorite time of year.

I learned today that the haze as seen in the panoramic images was caused by smoke from forest fires a thousand miles away in N-Ontario.

Great pics!

Never been anywhere other than the south coast in NB. St. Stephen-

St. John. A bit too developed for my tastes.

Looks very rural/agricultural.

Is there a high ratio of gravel/forest roads to paved roads.

This year has been weird weather wise. In some shots we noticed green leaves falling. Anyway, we seem to be about two weeks ahead of schedule considering the intensity of these colors.

The rock would be a great place to ride. Nice place and the people I've met from that area were great.

A very high ratio of logging roads, atv, snowmobile, old portages (lumber trails) all mostly located in the interior of the province. If you pull the map of NB, you will see that it's mostly populated along it's borders in each direction. The middle is basically empty. However, the problem is access. Most of the Province is now privately owned since our past governments basically gave it away to corporate interest. In fairness, many individuals have abused access by over fishing, hunting and simply being idiots by destroying private property. So now the companies are regulating access by putting up barriers and charging travellers for entering upon their lands.

However the volume of dual purpose riders is increasing and they cannot control everyone.

Uh oh, There goes another one on my list of

"Must Do" rides.

If I retired now and rode 'til I was 106, I might have time to

do all of 'em.

Great pics! I moved from Ontario to BC about 15 yrs ago, and one of the main things I miss is the fall colours. Would love to ride through that.
