    Ummm....Yeah but you have to cross the 49th and come into Canada....:D

    All I could post up is pics of snow....all our fall colour in Northern BC, like fellow members in Alberta, have long since gone.

    I get out plenty, and spend 60+ hours a week driving around Edmonton. Perhaps if I was stuck in a cubicle 40 hours a week the city would inspire me more. My observation isn't about any lack of cool fall colors here, more of a complaint that it is over and done so quickly. I may also still be a little butt hurt at the absence of summer this year...

    I live just off 137 ave

    Time to shovel some snow, the 2-4" they called for turned into 6"...

    Oh yeah you can. Look up the Four Corners Experience tour. I think Houlton is just north of the 46th. Last 2 exits on I 95 before entering Canada.

    Houlton is the last two exits on 95 before you enter New Brunswick. Madawaska is the actual " cap of Maine". there is very little there, a few small stores and dual citizens,.

    Yeah, we got seriously ripped off this "summer". In retrospect, it was barely worth insuring and registering my convertible. And all that snow we just got over the weekend is about to melt and make a mess. Just like last winter. Remember when it used to get cold and stay cold? If we have another freeze/thaw style winter like we did last year, I am seriously going to consider relocating. I live downtown and have a garage by Bonnie Doon. Message me, or I'll message you, we can go for a beer, or just shoot the sh*t at the garage.

    Did some digging, September 28, 2018, Edmonton, Alberta. Hotel MacDonald in foreground, river valley background. September 13, 2019, outside of Cadomin, Alberta. Poplars, I believe. And there's a bit of fall going on in the background at the junkyard, outside of Sherwood Park, Alberta, September 19, 2019.

    Which junkyard is that? Bucks?

    Have you been to Coyote Auto Salvage south of Toefield? Clayton has a seriously large collection of classics. "Dodge City" is a pretty large part. He can be quirky to deal with, but he has some good stuff there.

    I hate freeze/thaw cycles during winter. It's bad enough dealing with that in early spring, but at least then I know warmer weather is near. I guess no matter what we get here we'll find something to bitch about...

    Message incoming!

    Yep, that's Bucks. And no, I haven't been to coyote, I've heard good things, but have yet to make the venture. Looks like it's going to have to wait until next year. Thanks for reminding me of him.

    Winter is a good time for Coyote. No bugs, no mud...just gotta dress for it.

    I gotta swing by Bucks and have a look-see again soon. :thumbsup:
