Foliage ride

It was hard, what with the 80 degree temperatures, to believe it was autumn in the mountains, but we loaded up and went north. Then we loaded up some more and went further north. For a change of pace we took machines, kids and gear—not an easy undertaking—to a trail system close to the Canadian border to check out the views.
