“Fall” into the Outdoors

Ugh, it’s fall again.  Back to school.  Cold weather.  End of swimming season.  Shorter days.  Fall is the one of the worst times to go outside, right?

Absolutely not!!

Fall is my favorite season.  The weather is awesome, Starbucks has pumpkin spice lattes and football season starts!  It’s also the perfect time to be outside!  There are so many activities to do outside when it’s cool and breezy.  Play in the leaves.  Take a nature walk and breathe in the fresh air.  Carve a pumpkin.  Enjoy the spectacular fall colors!  Here in Nebraska, October is one of the best times to take a look at the spectrum of fall hues.
