Keller, Texas MUP, showing why it's worth riding, this time of year.
North Texas isn't noted for fall color. We just don't have the Maple trees that beautify the New England States and some of the eastern Canadian Provinces. Our Oak trees just sort of turn a mud brown and the leaves fall off, leaving the trees looking dead. Nor do we have the palm trees and long daylight hours that our friends living south of the 31st parallel enjoy. We've got no snow skiing resorts (he sheds a tear, here). We've only got, as far as I know, one custom frame maker in Dallas.
Still, sometimes it's not so bad around here. We're getting more daylight than the frozen northlands and we're getting more fall color and less humidity than Alligatorland. As the guy at the gym said to me, just the other day, "you know, except for the ocean and the beach, it's just like San Diego today!"
Besides, how many of y'all outside Texas know the pledge to the Texas flag? I have to admit, the place grows on you a bit after a while.
More of the trees along the Keller, Texas MUP, in the late afternoon, looking brighter than in real life.
