Fall colors in the PNW

Well, the trees are really starting to change colors with all the cool nights we have been having. All these pics are taken between our shop and the marina while pulling out boats for winter storage. This pic is of one of my favorites. It has been here for as long as I can remember.......


Dropping down into the marina. I wish it would have turned out brighter. The tree is a bright yellow....


That is the same tree looking back up from the docks....


The guy that owns this boat had a starter bolt break off in the block and didn't fix it, well, he went to start it today and the other one broke off and the starter is now sitting in the bilge. So, for $100, we towed him around and loaded him out. It will be about $1K in the spring to fix. Boat are expensive!!!


More to come......

Very nice guys, and thanks LB for pointing out what kind of tree that was, I have always wondered, but never asked. If anybody else has some fall pics, PNW or not, feel free to add them here...

Good thread, I just posted these at advrider because I saw Jud post a pic there. Taken today, nothing spectacular, but these three pictures were taken within two miles of the homestead.





That's Lake Michigan in the background in case you didn't know.

If you study this photo closely, you'll see a lighthouse.. Couldn't get the picture right to capture a fall tree and the Lighthouse.
