Fall Is Here!
“As the first leaves change their colors for autumn’s big show, we welcome the cool crispness in the air.”
My favorite time of year has arrived! Don’t get me wrong, Summer is great and all, but this is the season that really gets me excited. Cooler weather, trees changing colors, football season, Halloween and Thanksgiving, what’s not to like? It is also a great time to get out and go camping. If the trip is timed right, it can be a great time to catch the Fall colors. Depending upon where you are traveling, you may want to search the internet to find out how the trees are changing in that area. For example, Travel Wisconsin has a link that will show you a Fall Color Report by county. It is a great way to track the changing colors. Fall is also a great time to camp if you aren’t a fan of insects, mainly mosquitos. By this time of year their population has dwindled and you don’t have to worry so much about being covered in bug spray as you enjoy nature. And if you enjoy solitude while camping, there is no better time than now. Kids are back in school and most families have put away their camping gear for the season. State Parks still may fill up on the weekends, but you can practically pick the campsite you want during the week. If you can brave the cooler evenings and you don’t mind the sun setting earlier, this really is a great time to get out and enjoy the outdoors.
