We know: officially, summer has 19 days left. And while it doesn’t officially cede to fall until Sept. 22, in our hearts, today’s the day Summer spiritually hands off its sweaty baton to fall. It’s the traditional transition that we associate with the start of school, with football, and with cooler weather and drier days that lures us back to the trail.
We’ll talk more about that Wednesday. For now, a few scenes from this morning’s GetHiking! Triangle Fall Kickoff hike on the Mountains-to-Sea Trail at Falls Lake.
