Stay Active This Fall With Hiking Featuring prAna

Wow! Am I writing a post about fall already? Yes I am! I am actually very excited about the fall season, which is actually my favorite season. I see fall as a time to slow down from the hustle and bustle of the summer. It's the perfect time implement new routines for school, work and life.

Even though my day to day life slows down a little in the fall, my active life does not. Fall is my favorite time of year for getting active. It's not too hot and not too cold. It's a great time for indoor and outdoor activities. I personally really enjoy outdoor activities during fall especially hiking.

Hikes are a great way to really experience nature. I am super blessed to live in Colorado which is a beautiful place the be during the fall season, especially for hikes! I love to see the leaves turn colors and just to get out in nature and enjoy the beauty of it all.

Hiking is a great way to stay active and fit all while enjoying nature and spending time outdoors. There are also several benefits you get from hiking and you can make your hike as easy or as difficult as you'd like.
