FALL COLORS AND COLLEGE FOOTBALL IN LA GRANDE

Lots of the trees in town are starting to turn, and there are some nice colors.

On 4th Street, near M Avenue.

At 2nd Street and Main Avenue.
At 4th Street and Washington Avenue.




At First and Spring.

At our corner.

The Eastern Oregon University Mountaineers played the University of Montana-Western Bulldogs today at Community Stadium.

View looking east from the stands.

Help! Monty the Mountie is after me!!

Eastern led Montana-Western 33-7 at halftime but had to hang on for a 40-30 win. EOU is having a great season. They are now 6-1 in their league, and 6-2 overall. The latest poll had them ranked #19 in the country for their level (NAIA). Their only league loss came at the hands of Carroll College in Helena, Montana. EOU hosts Carroll next week in a game that could go a long way toward determining whether the Mounties will get a playoff game this year. EOU has only won six games in a season six times in the last 80 years! So this season is a special one so far.

You can see that it was a great day for a ballgame. This view is looking SE from the stadium stands.
I love this time of year around here. We usually get a few good weeks of fall weather before it gets icky with cold, rain and snow. I'm eating up this nice weather while it lasts!

Nice pictures. The Fall coloring is really great right now in Port Angeles too. It looks and feels like winter is approaching soon even though it's a little early for that, and Washington was having record highs just a few weeks ago.

The colours are beautiful. Thanks, Snave! Sadly, here in Missouri the leaves are just kind of a dull brown, even though we have had more than enough rain this year.
