Fall has arrived in the Methow Vally! The leaves are turning yellow, the larch are gold, and the ground cover is red. The days have been spectacular with highs in the 60's and 70's and lows below freezing up high and 40's on the valley floor. This is my favorite time of year for backpacking, hiking, climbing, and biking. No more smoke, no more sweating on the uphills. Come by and rent a bike and ride through yellow cottonwoods or pick up the new climbing supplements for the Matrix and the new granite crags Bryan has developed! Lots of new fall clothing has arrived and backcountry equipment will be here soon including the new DPS Tour1 skis!
