Fall means great times outdoors

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year due to all of the activities out there to enjoy.  From a casual ride to see the fall colors and maybe stop for a glass of cider at one of the areas cider mills, to camping, hunting, fishing, and yes, still cooking on the backyard grill.
It's all there to be enjoyed. Anglers will notice less boat traffic to compete with on area lakes as some have already winterized their boats and put them up for winter.
Instead of picking out which fishing tackle to take on a trip, they're deciding on where to hunt small game or plunking arrows in targets in preparation for October 1st and and the archery opener.
Holly Recreation Area is up, open and running. It's may miles of trails are great to hike this time of year. Besides the color show to be seen, many animals, including deer, are getting more visible as they prepare for the changes in seasons, affecting their behavior.
Bucks in particular could start getting a little careless as they search out does for breeding purposes rather than lurking back in the thick stuff.
Once you complete your hike or have your boat loaded, head for one of the picnic areas in the park at Holly Rec and grill some lunch. Hot dog, brats or burgers never tasted as good as they do over the fire outdoors.
Now, all you need to do is get off the couch or put the foot rest on the recliner down and get outside. It's all there waiting for you to enjoy.
