As summer winds down and the kids are back in school, fall is in the air. With crisp cool nights and shorter days come the colors of fall and everywhere you look the hills are covered with bright shades of color. Now is the perfect time to get out and go HIKING! If bugs and heat have been your excuse to not get outside, those excuses and gone, so let's go! Even during winter there is beauty to be seen. The ice and snow may not be enjoyable for those of us who have to work in it, but if you take it slow it is a great time to see the beauty that is often overlooked. ENJOY!
