Outdoor Adventures In The Fall
During the summertime, it’s easy for people to be outdoors almost constantly. Warm temperatures, sunny days, and complementary weather are what make people crave the outdoor experience. Unfortunately, when it comes time for the seasons to change into the fall weather, many people assume that it becomes too cold to enjoy the outdoors. Hiking, in particular, takes a hit during this time. If you fancy yourself as an outdoors person, don’t let the cooler temperatures deter you. With just a little bit of planning, courage, and a jacket, the fall has plenty of unique opportunities for many hiking adventures.
Unique Nature Walks
While the outdoors are beautiful any time of the year in Southern California, hiking around the local trails during the fall means you’re in for a treat. This is because the turning colors of the leaves and foliage are truly at their peak as the season unfolds. During this part of the fall, you’ll find plenty of dazzling vistas and photographic opportunities. Whether you’re handy with the camera or just want to take in the sights with your own eyes, hiking around San Elijo Hills in the fall won’t leave you disappointed. In fact, this is the perfect time of year for early morning or late evening walks while the sun is still up in the air. Take the family out after dinner or before school to take in the sights.
The family that hikes together stays together. Often times, when school starts up again and people go back to their daily work schedules, it’s difficult to find the quality family time that the summer offers in abundance. If you have the means to get out and hike with the family, however, this is the perfect time to do so. Not only will you be exercising together, but a nice slow walk is a perfect way to spend time with one another while outdoors. You can catch up on each family member’s day, current activities, or just discuss what everyone is thinking at the time. Typically, hiking around nature is a great way to spur conversation. It’s inspiring and can even lead to a few creative opportunities if you have family members who are artistic.
Preparing For The Weather
Despite the advantages that a fall hike can bring, you still need to be prepared for the potential weather changes you may experience. The truth is, temperatures still cool off even in Southern California this time of year. For most people, it’s enough to pack a light jacket or raincoat in their backpack before a hike in order to be prepared. When temperatures fluctuate throughout the day, you will have something to cover yourself with if it’s cool. When it’s nice and sunny, leave it in the backpack to soak in the comfortable rays of sunshine. Anything else you pack is simply icing on the cake. Take a few snacks, games, or activities to have some extra fun while out on the trails. As long as you have the right equipment for anyone that goes on the hike, it’s hard to go wrong with what you pack. Get creative and have some fun!
