They are plastic-wrapped bales of fermentation silage. A common sight this time of year in the countryside...

Some incredible Fall riding this year with no rain (but coming to an end after today it looks like)

If I don't get at least one stop like this on any ride, I feel cheated...

If the bike got stolen. and you didn't know which side the thief cam from or went to, who would have jurisdiction?

So you can you just cross over between U.S. and Canada like that without going through some kind of customs or border control?

Hmmm... is that one of those "if a tree falls in the woods..." kind of questions. I have no idea.

As for the border crossings... I'm not sure what kind of surveilance they have set up, but it seemed like I could just as easily jumped to the other road and happily rode off into the sunset of whichever country I chose. There are actual border crossings of course, which I legitimately pass through. On this day I was riding in Canada.

@HammerTime2 yes they are in fact giant marshmallows.

@JMilliron Can you get to the top of Mt. Bachelor using that road in the picture?

Is that snow or frosting?

No, just the ski resort lodge. Here is the GPS from the ride:

Also, here is GPS for the ride around Crater Lake:
http://app.strava.com/rides/24621322

Highly recommended. It's extremely scenic the entire way around. If you can't see the lake, it's usually at least an awesome view out the other way.

Snow by the looks of it. Did you mean frosting from a cake?

Oh yeah, I assume that's snow that's left over from last winter season.

Is that the old cliff road, with rope guard rail, I see toward the right side of the picture right next to the cliff?

Concept of OHS hasn't arrived yet in Malta, so no guard rails here... :wink:

Unfortunately these are the last ride photos from OS for this trip. Just got in this morning at 3:15am after 26 hours travelling; so now sitting at home in a jetlag induced fog procratinating about going outside and mowing the lawn left for 5 weeks... :(
