If you’re looking for an amazing hiking destination with breathtaking scenery, Glacier National Park is one of our favorite  destinations, especially in the fall when summer crowds have gone home.

From Donna:

Now that summer crowds have gone home, Alan and I are exploring the central Oregon coast for the next couple of weeks. On Thursday, we hiked Ona Beach at Brian Booth State Park. You’ll find this lovely, wide beach between Newport and Waldport. Alan and I like to start early so that we can enjoy a late breakfast at Waldport Café (formerly Mom’s Place).

Hmm, maybe I should write an article on all the beaches between Lincoln City and Florence. What do you think?

From Nicole:

Yes, I love summer time,  but I can’t help but welcome in fall weather with wide open arms this year! In fact, this month, our travel topic is one of my favorites—Fall Hiking Adventures. while summertime may be the best for lazing around the pool or beach, fall is the perfect time to get moving.
