Big Fall Creek

October 11, 2009

Six bikers arrived at the meeting place, Lowell State Park, under cloudy skies. This ride was rescheduled from the previous Sunday due to poor weather. With a temperature of about 40 in the parking lot, we were wondering what the weatherman had in store for us with our “redo”. We had a couple of small hills early in the ride, so we all quickly warmed up even though the temperature really hadn’t. Fortunately, after about 12 miles the clouds began to burn off as we headed into the Fall Creek burn area. The recent cold temperatures and the lack of shade in the burn had the vine maple showing off their spectacular fall colors. By the time we arrived at our lunch spot at Puma Creek Campground, the skies were clear. We lunched at a picnic table located in the sun and basked in its warmth. After lunch we had a beautiful ride back to Lowell. Although even George, our resident polar bear, wore a jacket for the entire ride, everyone really enjoyed the fall weather and scenery. Riders were Dave Becker, Barb Bruns, George Jobanek, Darlene Mancuso, Joyce Sanders and leader Stewart Hoeg.
