With the weather cooling throughout so much of the country, this is probably one of the best times of the year to go outside and explore nature. With the crisp and cool airy breezes and the beautiful Fall foliage setting fire to the skies, there’s no time like the present to get out and soak up your surroundings. While there is no denying that Spring is also a beautiful time of year with all the earth’s flowers in full bloom, there is nothing that compares to nature’s grand finale of the Fall season. In a way, the Autumn season is nature’s last hurrah before all the trees lose their leaves and become smothered with blankets of freezing, white, powdery snow that lasts for weeks and weeks. Winter was a doozy last year – it felt as though Spring would never come. So just in case we’re in for another brutal Winter this year, we should all go out and make it a point to enjoy what time we have in this beautiful weather!
So what is this thing called outside and what should we do in it? It’s true that when a person is outside, things such as Netflix, no cable, internet access, and in some areas cell reception, no longer exist. Okay, so almost everywhere has cell reception these days, so unless you literally find yourself under a rock you should be fine. But what exactly is there to do outside? Well, thanks to the Fall season, there’s plenty going on! All over the country, countless pumpkin patches are sprouting up all over the place, as well as corn mazes, hay rides, bonfires, orchard parties, Fall festivals, state as well as county fairs and carnivals galore! So what else is there to do exactly? This is a great time of year to explore your local hiking trails!
Regardless of what kind of area you live in, there is usually always some sort of nature or hiking trail that can be found. Granted, these trails may be a little difficult to find in the western deserts or in the swampy wetlands of the south – but where there is a will there is a way. Few things in our lives can get us back in touch with nature the way an adventure can! But don’t think that you’ll be completely on your own!
In fact, many of these nature and hiking trails are considered parks that the city, state, and even the national government set aside money for every year. As an added bonus to these areas, these trails can be a great source for tourism! Some have picnic areas, gorgeous natural views, as well as bathrooms and designated camping areas. So just how are you supposed to find all of these areas while you’re on the trail? Believe it or not, these pathways have signs all over the place designed to make sure that no one gets lost or hurt along the way which is a great source for tourism! Some have picnic areas, gorgeous natural views, as well as bathrooms and designated camping areas. So just how are you supposed to find all of these areas while you’re on the trail? Signs of course!
Some of these hiking trails can be more dangerous than others, depending on where you live, so it’s always important to make sure you go on your walk or hike, somewhere well traveled with informational signs throughout the area just in case. Great for directing people around the park, these signs are also the best way to warn hikers and joggers of dangerous cliffs, swampy areas, and even potential wildlife that may be hiding in around the brush and trees.
