Kinda funny; we live in Minnesota and are currently visiting New Hampshire. We are tripping in New England to see the fall colors here. While it is beautiful country and we are enjoying it, Northern Minnesota has every bit a nice of fall color.
Sometimes we have to go away to really appreciate what we have at home.

Here's a shot early morning on Lake Hudson about a week and a half ago. Still some color left on the trees but I think I missed the peak color by about a week.

Uh oh, looks like trailrider's multiple pic posts got deleted (along with kanoe's heckling). I liked the pics, trailrider, but maybe it wasn't appropriate to post so many in the contest thread. Pic one, post it, and link to your album with an invitation to see the others there. I'd look, they're good pics.

Journeyman, your picture looks like a painting not a photograph.

As Ho Ho said, you are more than welcome to post them or link to them in another thread. I like to keep this thread clean so that when we have to vote at the end of each month we don't have to sift through non entries. Great pictures though!

I posted those pics for fun. The pic that greenydd posted is not from the BWCA or Q so I figured it was open. No hard feelings and Adam knows I'm a photo nut. I wish kanoes would mind his own business but it's all in good fun. Thanks for the nice comments. If you all have time, here's more. http://community.webshots.com/user/jonwood100

It looks like the first portage after you get on the river. Am I right? Very high indeed.

If memory serves, Mr. Barley is correct. About 10 rods into the first portage after Nina Moose Lake, down the river, there's a turnout to a rock outcropping. I took the shot on that outcropping. We had paddled against the current from Oyster Lake, and yes, the water was high, and moving fast. Made for a long last day out.

This was after about 15 inches of rain in September, I think.
