HOW TO PACK
Autumn can be unpredictable – some days are in the 70s and sunny and other days the brisk air hits. Here are the best tips for packing for a trip from September through November.
1. Bring layers – t-shirts, long sleeve shirts, light jackets, fleece sweatshirts. The more layer options, the better. That way you can get to your preferred comfort level depending on the temp.
2. Don't forget the sunscreen/sunglasses – the sun still typically shines bright in the fall, so just like the summer months, lather up so you don't get burnt!
3. Grab your hat and gloves – it's common for the sun to shine brightly, but when you get out on the trails and there are shaded paths, it can start feeling chilly again. Have a hat and gloves handy to keep yourself warm!
4. Take water everywhere you go – elevation sickness is a real thing! Thwart any ill effects by staying hydrated at all times.
