So, as I mentioned in my previous blog, it is OCTOBER, which means it is finally Fall in the South. This is BY FAR my favorite time of year. I love the cooler weather and the color of the changing leaves (although that hasn't really started here yet.) This time of year I find it almost impossible to sit still inside. Every part of me wants to be somewhere else.
I was a little worried about the lack of outdoor activities when I moved down to Andalusia. Yeah, there are lakes- but those are really more fun in the summer. What I want are hiking trails. So, yesterday I got on OutdoorAlabama.com and was very pleasantly surprised to find there are actually some nearby! And by nearby, I mean 13 miles from my house!!! In fact, there are 20 miles of trail just south of here in the Conecuh National Forest. I have a feeling I will be seeing those very soon!
