Starting to see some fall colours already so I took a short drive in the Merc for some photos.

Thanks Mark. Looking forward to seeing a few pictures of the fall colours there too. I'm hoping to get out for a few more as they turn. Might break a record high temp here in Sask. today. Already over 80 degrees at noon. The Merc might handle it but not sure I will.

Looking good Mark. The maples turn first here too. Leaves starting to fall already. I recorded a bit of video yesterday too. Sort of a rear bumper view. Gives a really nice sound from the straight pipe.
