Every year, I dread the arrival of fall. Hiking and camping are my favorite activities, and they are undoubtedly best in the glorious days of summer.

Ahhh, and what a glorious summer we had.

Now, though, it is clearly fall. And now that it's here, I'm reminded of the charms of autumn. Not the least of which are the lovely colors.

I just wrote about six hikes that are great for fall. If you can find a day that's not too wet, you'll be rewarded with bright colors, solitude and very few (if any) bugs.

If you want more fall color, here are a few links to get you pointed in the right direction.
