Fall is a fabulous time to be outdoors with its dazzling colors, crisp air and increased wildlife activity. Whenever I’m hiking, birding or hunting, I try to be sure I’m properly prepared. Weather changes in the fall can be quick and extreme, so I’ll tie a windbreaker or fleece top around my waist in case temperatures drop or winds start to pick up. Carrying water (in refillable bottles) is always part of my gear. Now that hunting seasons have opened, I’ll also pull on my blaze orange cap or vest for my weekend jaunt up Mt. Wachusett or short walk in the Westborough Wildlife Management Area. Hunters and other outdoor folks appreciate the safety aspects of visibility! Whatever outdoor activity you choose this fall, taking some simple safety precautions will make for a more enjoyable experience.
What do you do to prepare for an outdoor adventure? What do you take with you?
Enjoy the season!
