Get yo'self outside...nowzo!Don't worry -- we'll never be that bossy without also having a handful of enabling excuses to help you talk yourself, your friends + your family out the door with you!
What: Go Camping!
Why: Whether you're headed for an official campground or looking to hit up some public land the should season is a great item to get outside + live out of a tent, if only for a weekend. You'll get to watch the seasons change before your eyes. If you're lucky you'll have frost on your tent in the early morning hours + the perfect amount of sunshine for an afternoon hike along trails covered in leaves. It's also the perfect weather for marshmallows over a campfire since you'll be jones'ing for the warmth + light before 8pm rolls around!
Watch For: Colder than expected nights, high winds + lots of foraging animals.
What: Visit National Parks!
Why: With the school year in full swing the National Parks will be experiencing a dip in visitors so now is your chance to actually get a parking spot at the main trailheads! With fewer people on the trails, you'll be able to really enjoy your time in the wilderness + take your time getting epic photos from well-known overlooks. Get advice from the Park Rangers + trust their intel when it comes to trail closures + snow cover.
Watch For: Animals preparing for winter, seasonal closures + changing weather.

What: Hike Local Trails!
Why: Remember that trailhead you drove by a few times last summer + kept thinking "wow, that trail must be great...the lots always full"? Well, go there! It's a safe be the lot isn't full right now! If you're really lucky you'll be able to spend some time getting familiar with an area that will also be great for winter hikes + snowshoe outtings!
Watch For: Other locals on the trails
