South Fork Mountains Fall Color

Picture of the Month – October 2004

There are endless roads in Humboldt and Trinity counties to explore by motorcycle, especially if you have a dual purpose bike like my KLR650. Lately I’ve been exploring the roads off of Highway 36 in the South Fork Mountains. While chatting with a ranger at the Horse Ridge Lookout station, I was told I should check out Route 30. I found the fall foliage spectacular, and this little pond just charming. It is fed by two different creeks, and at the opposite side, one creek continues on to become the Trinity River. I used my new Kodak SLR/n for this photo, making good use of its ability to be set at really low ISOs, in this case I used an ISO of 25 to shoot this at f16 @ 4 seconds.
