Dear Traveler:
There’s a new cool breeze blowing through the forests in the evening. We’ve all been enjoying it after a long summer of hiking, biking, fishing, fiddling, climbing and classical music-ing. That breeze is more than just a way to chill out, but a sign that change is in the air. Specifically, a change of seasons. Soon the days will grow shorter, the trees will show off their autumnal hues and fall will be upon us.
No need to start pulling out the sweaters yet. September still boasts plenty of warm sunny days and mild evenings, perfect for cheering on the competitors in the Pisgah Stage Race and/or grabbing your seat for the Mountain Song Festival (you need to get those tickets now, by the way). Get out there and enjoy this beautiful weather and this most glorious part of the year. The white squirrels expect to see every single one of you out here before October, no excuses.
So leaf your worries behind and hit the trail.
See you in the fall,
The Adventurist
