I ride down to Pinnacles National Park every so often other than in the summer when it's too hot. Till recently the road in the park has been closed about 4 miles from the end but it was open yesterday so I rode up to Bear Gulch and was able to get some better views than what you can get from the entrance. It also adds another 400ft of climbing to the ride.

Out gravel riding yesterday and came upon this cranberry harvest. Canada is the 2nd largest cranberry producer in the world, and they're harvested by flooding the fields (cranberries float!)

Cranberries as far as we could see!


Here's the floating boom used to corral the cranberries.


Changing from gravel to grass out at Pitt Lake.

The smoke from the wildfires out west made for some nice sunrises in Wisconsin a couple of weeks ago.

LOL. The zip ties are holding a piece of PVC pipe cut to size, wrapped in electrical tape. When I first tried, the zip ties slipped off the bare pipe. The PVC is part of an old AC drain so the system only costs me the tape and zip ties.

Rattles a lot so no stealth. OTOH I don't need a bell.

6-8 inches of snow on October 20th. Suffice to say this is the earliest I ever had to snow blow my driveway. A record I don't want to beat.
