Reasons why fall is my favorite time

Fall is easily my favorite time of year. There's something magical about the change of seasons. Perhaps it's the cooler days and brisk mornings. Or it's the sight and sounds of Canada geese flying overhead.

Fall is a breath of fresh air in more ways than one. Here are some of the reasons I like the fall more than any other time, even though it is Mother Nature's way of preparing for winter....

...the clean blue skies, clean crisp air;

...the smell of wood burning in woodstoves and fireplaces;

...the perfect weather;

...the leaves changing; color;

...the end of the mowing season;

...the first bowl of camp chili;

...college football;

...the end of the bug season - mosquitoes, flies or wasps;

...not having to run the air conditioner or heater;

...the heat and humidity are gone;

...soups, stews and the slow cooker;

...the days get shorter, earlier sunsets;

...sorting my hunting clothes and gear;

...time seems to slow, becoming so relaxed I can take a nap in the woods;

...preparing for hunting camp;

...shooting my bow;

...the sound of leaves crunching underfoot;

...cleaning my guns and sighting them in;

...the end of the golf season;

...outdoor photography;

...campfires;

...Thanksgiving Day and the traditional family gatherings;

...camouflage, all kinds of it;

...the snug comfortable feeling of hunting boots;

...setting treestands and sitting in treestands;

...the tug of binoculars hanging from my neck;

...sweatshirts;

...the feel of a backpack;

...early mornings walk-ing to a stand using a flashlight;

...sunrise;

...sunset;

...anticipation of my next hunting trip;

...the sale of pumpkins and cider at roadside stands;

...apple pie;

...daydreaming of a giant whitetail roaming past my treestand;

...the familiar flutter of a flushed grouse, or pheasant;

...eating smoked salmon.

...bacon and eggs;

...the first frost;

...playing cribbage with my hunting buddies;

There is a harmony in the fall. And I'm thankful to live in an area where I can enjoy the wondrous changing of the seasons.
