Road Stories: Fall Foliage

Fall Foliage
I have enjoyed the mid-October Fall Foliage cycling weekend in Staunton VA for many years, and one route passes by farms that often host herds of alpacas. In the photo, I am posed next to a fenced pasture with several of these photogenic and friendly animals. Curious or expecting handouts, who knows?, but they have to be some of the most endearing critters. I've seen alpacas at this same farm cavorting and gamboling, calling to each other with playful cries you could not have imagined as belonging to alpacas.
This photo brings back good memories of sometimes hard, but pleasant riding, with steady friends in idyllic countryside and in (usually) superb fall weather.
