Many people find it surprising that a huge chunk of the southern US was natively dominated with pines (long leaf). It's a shame how little they are planted here, there is no reason it has to look so dead during the winter.

75 miles. I've shown photos from that ride several times before, but only in the spring: Spring 2013 and Spring 2012.

Hail in mid-late October? I guess the instability comes from the Baltic sea?



Mostly green here. Some isolated patches of fall color starting to show up out of town:









Spoiler





Confluence





Chestnut trees





Graffiti





Someone likes beer







Wow the situation is bad on this street.





Pretty nice, lively 'hood





Playing pétanque





Another panorama. Further out so less concrete.





Hate it when they cut trees like this:





Strange mish mash





Another banana tree





A big, brand new roundabout.





Nice cycle path, for once!





Finally, a métro stop. Though no art nouveau entrance there.







Wish my former line had such bus lanes





Big commieblocks at dusk

Considering the hilly terrain, that's a lot (at least to me ). The area looks fun to explore.

Came quickly down from the north. We had hail after midnight, but it was over as quickly as it started.

Nice pics there!
