If there is one thing that makes the fall superior to all other seasons it is how it seems to make everyone want to look around in awe for hours.

Thanks to more reasonable temperatures, the lack of heat related issues, and an abundance of easy trails that are usually less crowded because the kids are back in school and people are back at work, hiking in the fall is a thrilling experience.[slideshow:102563]

The stunning yellows, oranges and reds that dot the tips of trees make it unique.

The scenery is at least half of the reason people go hiking in the first place and there’s no better time to take it all in than autumn.

The ethereal views will mentally recharge and energize you for weeks ahead. Sometimes people are lucky enough to be at the right place at the right time to see unique natural color combinations that can blow their minds. Different hues have a way of changing emotions.
