It's one of the best times of the year up here in the North East. Except for setting the clocks back and having it be dark by 5 o'clock and the water being too cold to swim in. Perfect temperatures for hiking and being outside. A New England Fall is something to experience.
For most of my friends, its a time that is spent in the woods. Not that it isn't always that time, but this time of year the woods seem even sweeter. Camping at the trails all hanging out by a fire.
