Out and About in October

Lots of miscellaneous rides in the last couple of weeks of October:

On the 12th, a bunch of folks headed up the Coal Mine Trail to the Old #3 for lunch (and some folks choose not to weather the weather, and drove up the street!).

The large and the small of things!
Beautiful autumn colors.
Traded photographers...
Can you tell who drove and who rode to the Old #3?
Good eats and good company!
"Hay! Where's OUR lunch?!?"

Then, less than a week later, another food oriented ride: this time from the Fairgrounds in E-burg, across the John Wayne Trail to Kittitas for lunch at Curley’s.  More eaters than riders, again due to the brisk weather–but you know Pat–she’ll use any excuse to ride!

Headin' out.
At the Kitttias station.

A few days later, four intrepid riders who met in the rain at Thorp on the 22nd, decided to outrun the storms and headed east to Kittitas instead.

Then, while the East was being hammered with up to two feet of sn*w (gak!) on the last weekend of October, several KVTR folks wandered in several different directions (but in the following two cases, towards the Columbia).

On the Boyleston grade.
Up the Ginkgo canyon.

Be sure and be watching for you “Tailwinds” newsletter next week:  several important topics for the November 10th KVTR meeting at the Cattlemen’s Association building, including election of officers (we need nominations) and the club Christmas party!

[Bonus points to anyone who can name the rider that went on ALL but one of these rides, and then only because she couldn’t be in two places at once!]

Quote for the day:  “To ride, or not to ride?  What a stupid question!”
