Get outside while weather cooperates

   Whether you hunt, fish, ride a bike, hike or walk, the fall is one time of the year being outdoors is very special.
   That's because most of the bugs-those pesky mosquitoes and biting flies-have all but disappeared making being outside really nice.
   The weather; the air actually, seems to take on a different smell. Fresh and cool, it almost recharges us in our daily activities.
   Maybe it's because we know that in a short time, winter will be here putting the clamps on time spent outside.
   Unless you ice fish, ski or snowshoe, you may go outdoors once a week to put the trash out, preferring to be like some of the animals and hibernate until spring. That's really not an option. It's something we can talk more about later.
   But now, it's time to enjoy those fall colors, daily temperatures without all the humidity and less crowded conditions at parks and on lakes.
   Go ahead. Get outside. Do it soon because Mother Nature has a way of changing her moods on a moments notice!

  1. This is so true that we need to be outside to enjoy nature just to unwind. We carry our cell phones planted to our ears like we don't want to miss anything when we are missing so much by even turning it on. Hit a park and just sit for a spell. Your life will be better for it and you might smile more.
