A quick hike up Mount Aire this morning.

Lots of berries on this hike

The fall colors aren't very radiant this year, bu the yellows were the most impressive along the way

The maples were a disappointment, but this one had some red in it

Elderberries anyone?

Dead conifer on the ridge

Nice share!
sadly the maples are mostly just drying up instead of going down in a blaze of glory...

Nice photos @scatman ! A little disappointed that you didn't provide a narrative for this hike ... :stomp:

I just assumed folks were getting tired of my narratives. :p I'm glad you enjoy them.

Not much to tell on this one. I played almost 2.5 hours of basketball on Saturday morning, so my knees were screaming at me on the steep part of this hike yesterday. Let's see....., I was kiltless on this hike and it was extremely windy when I got up top. So much so that it nearly blew my bicycle cap all the way to @Artemus' house. I didn't see any wildlife other than two scrub jays that were squawking at me on my way down.

@Dave and I were hiking not far from you the day before. We saw two parties of hunters. You ?

@Artemus - Yes, as I started up the trail, a single hunter passed me heading back to his vehicle. When I returned to the trailhead their was a truck parked there that I assumed belonged to another hunter(s), though I didn't see him/them on the trail. Maybe they hiked up towards Lambs Canyon instead of Mount Aire.
