Summer's almost over...

We're almost there! We've almost survived another Florida summer! Admit it, even if you love warm weather, July and August in Florida can be a bit much!  And of course up here in north Florida, winter can range from beautiful and 80 degrees to wet, miserable and in the 40s! But, September and October tend to be pretty much perfect for all things outdoors. So, who's planning what for the Fall?

September and October are usually excellent months nearly everywhere, certainly this is true for Arizona and California.  I hope to get out to  Channel Islands National Park and do some paleontological work - lot of hiking, hopefully some digging, and maybe a bit of technical rope....

@hikermor Paleontology in a national park... Is that with a volunteer group of some kind?

Summer may almost over but now the good stuff comes, winter camping, peaceful, alone time, looking forward to it. Camping, hunting, snow shoeing, ice fishing.

@DaveBaldwin - Good question!! Officially, I will be working as a volunteer with a local museum with valid permits, etc.  The items, if any, collected will be part of he NPS collection, which is curated at this same museum.

I was on staff as park Archaeologist for fifteen years until retirement.  Old habits die hard....

40s is miserable?  That's shorts weather!  Fall usually involves more hikes and camping as the daily high heat index drops out of the miserable lower 80s and into the 60s/70s 😀

It's not usually the temperature that makes winters miserable around here... it's the gusty winds and driving rain. Not every day, of course, but you don't want to be out in a nor'Easter!

  I'm waiting for the crazy heat to somewhat subside, the wildfires to be at least 70% contained (Dixie, Tamarack, etc.), and the smoke/unhealthy air quality to get back into a proper healthy level.  Then (!), I can do my first bike-packing trip hopefully before Winter's onset.  Currently jonseing to ride but can't due to all the fires here in the West; driving me nuts..!
