Summer is slowly making its way around the globe and boots, sweaters and beanies will soon appear all around us. I almost wore pants to work today. I rocked a long sleeve running shirt on the trail yesterday morning, and I’ll probably wear a thin pair of gloves for tomorrow’s jog. But I like it. I don’t mind the cooler temps because they mean winter is on the way and snow will be falling soon. Plus, the best season for hiking is late summer and fall, it’s not too hot mid-afternoon, the bugs have stopped bugging, and the summer colors turn to fall colors. If you’ve never rode a mountain bike through an Aspen grove on singletrack covered in yellow leaves (picture the Yellow Brick Road on steroids, without evil flying monkeys), you must add it to your to-do list this fall.
