David C. Jones

It’s time, Nature is calling. This is Outdoor Recreation Month and all of the many days that have been designated to observe different outdoor activities are showing up almost every day.

Autumn is the season that brings us the long-awaited pleasant weather that calls us out. The list of activities and opportunities are really limitless. Trails, biking, bird and nature viewing, boating and fishing, picnicking and parks, gardening and yard work. The diversity of interest and activities leads us down different paths. Either with your family or friends or else by simply enjoying the solitude of going it alone.
