Sounds like a ZapperZ Photo Contest Title - well - almost.

Here are some pictures taken up towards Turbo's neck of the woods.

There are some other great photos by PFers in Moonbear's Disqualified! thread and several of ZapperZ's Photo Contest threads.

I thought a separate thread of PFers photos of outdoors might be in order.

So please contribute photos of your favorite places.

Moxie Falls is one of my favorite places in the state. With all the rafters, canoeists, and campers visiting that region these days, the trail is heavily used. When we were kids, my friends and I used to hike up the road from the West Forks, take the trail to the falls, and hang out there most of the day without seeing another soul.

Very nice!!!

We lived in Northern Ca. during my last couple of years of high school, and a buddy and I frequented a nearly identical fall and pool that we too had to ourselves back then. My buddy's Black Lab, Grunt, would dive off of the cliffs right after us!

We later named a goat in Grunt's honor. :biggrin:

Here are the ruins of an abandoned boathouse on one of my favorite ponds. It doesn't have the best trout fishing, but it's OK, and it's easy to get to.

Another foggy one

I went back to the cove this morning. It was incredibly foggy as you can see from this shot. Click on the image to see it in a larger size for more detail.

Those are great! The first one is my favorite-pure snow with a perfect sky.

This shot is not of the caliber of many here, but I needed to get out and capture some fall colors today. This is a pair of apple trees at a scenic overlook dedicated to the Old Canada Road. I did not post a direct <IMG> link because the image is wide and it would cause the browser windows to offset.

That's a great shot! Just the way it would look in person.

Some beautiful color Turbo. I bet it would be great if you could catch it at sunset with golden light on those trees in the background.
