Country Views: Late Fall

It is getting on in the year and now things have changed from the greens of Summer to the golden hues of Fall with the "brown season" just at the doorstep. I haven't been able to get out in the country lately but Wednesday I did and so I gathered a few images to share.

Freshly harvested fields leave an interesting pattern of lines not unlike corduroy.
 Fallen leaves gather along the road edges and the trees are blushing with golds and rich oranges.
A silent combine with a hopper full of corn sits under the Fall Sun
Barns For Jason: Sheep watch warily as I pass by on my single speed.
There is still a fair amount of corn left to be harvested. All the soybeans have been taken out by now.
A perfectly good car in the ditch. I don't see this often unless it has snowed heavily or unless there is ice. Weird!
The restored Bennington No. 4 School house in the distance to the right here.
Wild asparagus turns a beautiful shade of orangey-gold in Fall.  The shoots in Spring are considered a delicacy in Iowa.
Heading South on Moline Road a couple miles before hitting Waterloo again.

What gear combo are you going to attempt your SS century on?

@Ari- I am not sure exactly what it is because it is what I have used for a decade and I don't think about it anymore. I'm pretty sure it is 38 X 18, or maybe that's a 17 on the back, Something like that anyway.
