I was born and raised in a small city of Kieler WI, across the Mississippi from Dubuque IA. This time of year I really miss the colors of fall. I remember every fall visiting a state park called Wyalusing. Are there any members near there and could you send me some pictures of this great park. :cool

Fall colors

Ken,

I don't live in beautiful Wisconsin area but if I can I will try to take some fall shots if you want to see color leaves?

Hey, I am still looking for a fix for my lid problem, so maybe you can find me a nice long hard breeze so that I can make my tonneau cover (lid) pop up higher? ;)

I hope you get some more too - uh, photographs that is!!!
Hey Keith,

Take your SSR and pack your camera and come up to the Northeast area. There you will find some of the best colors in the world. Lots and lots of RED and YELLOW with some even have shades of Black in them. Only one thing bad about colored leaves... I don't think there are any trees that have fall leaves that turn Silver in the fall... hmmm do you know of any? :mad

:rolleyes:

Saw a bunch changing while we were there a few weeks ago. Very beautiful, but speaking as an ex-native - you'll be raking them up for weeks while we're still looking at green down here. BTW - my cargo cover pops up just fine - but it doesn't have the weight of that carpeting on it. Maybe that's the difference.

Silver Leaves

A quick google:
Here is a comparison of the typical late spring and summer reflectant, silvery leaves of California desert brittlebush, Encelia farinosa (Family Asteraceae), with a broader, dark green leaf formed by the plant during early spring, when plant water status was high. NOT a tree but ~ See attached...


As far as heading to the NE w/ my camera - well, it's in the planning stages...

My youngest graduates in June of '07 - so summer / fall of 07 will be the "See The USA in My Chevrolet - SSR" tour. Making prelim plans to try to see all 28 MLB parks in a 8 week romp across the USA - and back!!!

Hey Chevrolet - or General - wanna sponsor this trip? (In case they are listening!!!)

HI Machell,
Thanks for telling me. I believe the image is way too large to post. I should have resized it... I will try that again later. :seeya

The only thing missing from these photos is the SSR very pretty. I think we have one or two trees changing color in Texas :lol)
