Monday — never an easy time for the outdoors enthusiast. After a weekend of adventure, returning to the humdrum work-a-day world can make one melancholy. To help ease the transition, every Monday we feature a 90 Second Escape — essentially, a 90-second video or slide show of a place you’d probably rather be: a trail, a park, a greenway, a lake … anywhere as long as it’s not under a fluorescent bulb.
Today’s 90-Second Escape: Let the Fall Hiking Season Begin
Man, what a weekend in the Triangle! Saturday, we awoke to temperatures in the 50s under clear, dry skies. A perfect day to kick off our GetHiking! Triangle program http://greatoutdoorprovision.com/event/feat-event/sept-tri-gethiking/ with a hike on the Company Mill Trail at Umstead State Park. Sunday was a near repeat of Saturday weatherwise, so we headed down to Harris Lake County Park for a hike on the 6-mile Peninsula Trail, one of the Triangle’s under-appreciated hikes, in my book.
Check out 90 seconds from that trip, and prepare to get inspired for the fall hiking season ahead.
