Fall is officially here. Let’s take advantage of the best time of year to get outside. Forget what you’ve heard, it’s not summer, because let’s be real who wants to sweat that much. This is our list for what you can find us doing this fall as well as the gear to take it to the next level.
1. Chasing Fall Colors
What better way to get a glimpse of the changing scenery than from a hike to the top of a peak. With trees changing from their typical green to vibrant oranges and reds, the view will be even more breathtaking than in the balmy summer months. The cooler climate also helps motivate you to get outdoors for that long summit hike. Don’t forget your wool socks to keep those feet dry and blister-free.
We like Injinji Wool Toe Socks $18.
2. Rooting on Your Team
Fall signals football season. Whether it is a professional game or your kid’s school football team, it usually involves sitting in the bleachers on a cold night. Make sure to bring a mug of your favorite fall drink as well as your knit cap to keep you toasty all night long.
We like The Holden Beanie by Krochet Kids $28.
3. Pitching your tent
With the summer camp crowds coming to an end, fall is the ideal time to get some serious camping in before the really cold weather hits. It is also a great time to score a prime campsite at that destination you have been dreaming about all summer. Don’t forget to pack a cozy fleece for those chilly nights.
We like the Patagonia Better Sweater $99.
4. Pushing the Peddles
If hiking/running isn’t your thing and you still want to take in the outdoors while getting the heart rate up, grab your bicycle for a fast track through spectacular scenery. We suggest taking a road less traveled where cars and traffic won’t present any dangers or inhibit getting a peek at the good stuff. Since we know you will want to grip the handle bar extra tight while snapping pictures along the way, be sure to stock up on silicone QALO rings in a variety of colors for fall.
