Did a 346 mile run today. Was looking for leaves to peep at but the color is not at it's peak yet. It was a great ride anyway.
I'll bet it was! After our snow, it's pretty much over.

Re: Cabin Fever?

Deadwood got about 24". I'm 100' higher in elevation, just 15 miles to the north and I'm guessing we have 14" here at my place.

The Canyon is turning out to be very nice this year. We didn't get a late tornado or an early snow storm. Warm days an chilly nights seems to make the colors nice and vibrant this year.

We finally had some rain. Not big rain, but the ground got wet and it took most fo the day for it to dry out.
Hope to get out to Spearfish Canyon this week yet too - the colors are almost in full bloom!

Re: Always missed ,, Forever Remembered (Grizz)

It was a good rally. But I spent most of it working and processing photos - not going to do that next year. We're only starting to come up for air again now. I sold our office building, so we spent the 3 day weekend rearranging everything so we could fit tshirts (and related stuff) and shipping stuf...

Re: its only 365 lizzy

The rally is a lot busier than last year, but not nearly busy enough to hit 1M. Maybe 700K is my guess... maybe even a bit less.
Of course it depends upon whose counting. :)
Definately not as busy as the 75th. The photographers are taking maybe 75% of the photos they took that year.

There is a possibility this rally could go over 1M... The hills have already been full and today I90 was thick withcampers and bikes and folks on the way to Sturgis. This is a BIG year so far. Because it started later in the month, it could end early... A photographer during the 75th (700K to 800K a...

The calm before the storm is not very calm! We're rumbling over here! Photographers are already getting flashed! :boobs:
Also 1"+ rain last night in northern hills. Good to get a shot of water before the Rally actually starts.

The vendor tents are starting to go up in Sturgis so someone has hopes of a big rally.
there's been long waiting lings to get into most tourist places - like YellowStone, and even Devils Tower.
I'm expecting the same thing with this Rally. I'm expecting a bunch of people to just show up.
