September is a pretty sweet month.
Dear Traveler,
September is a pretty sweet month. The last few true summer weeks feel a little magical, especially if you catch the slightest whiff of the coming autumn. We’ve got a month or more before the leaves start doing their fall fashion show (oranges, reds, golds are going to be big this year, we predict), which means you’ve got plenty of time to go big on the green and soak in those summery days on the trail, on the river, or on a patio outside your favorite local watering hole.
All sorts of things are happening in Brevard and Transylvania County, indoors and outdoors, no matter your pleasure, so you’re sure to find plenty of great excuses to stop by for a spell and see what makes this month so special.
Catch you on the trail,
