We had about an hour to kill before the ski lifts started for the day; nearby riders were putting on a parking lot party, blasting the iconic, “The Boys are Back in Town,” from their truck radio.
The whole group joined in singing, but the line, “Won’t be long ‘til summer comes, now that the boys are here again,” felt a little wrong while we were all standing in the snow, clad in ski gear.
This set off a heated argument:
Let everyone know in the comments — I’ll be popping in and out to chat with all of you here, throughout the day!
Bonus point if you have a season-specific activity or tradition that helps your case!
Obviously fall. Fall leaves, fall clothes (flannels! Scarves! Boots!), ideal weather, Taylor Swift "Red" album, and the food (come on, apple pie). It's a season of reflection, it radiates beauty, and reminds us all to cherish each moment--no matter how short--with each leaf that f a l l s.
Summer. Beach chair by the water’s edge, toes in the sand, waves lapping at the shore and the sun warming your skin. So much to do on the water, endless summertime family memories and the boys are usually back in town.
No season is better in my book.
The best for me is to live an area where you have access to the best of all 4 seasons.
Skiing - alpine and cross-country - in winter, fishing in spring, hiking and kayaking in summer, hunting in autumn.
Plus all the activities I did not mention that can overlap seasons (running, camping,…)
Winter... skiing, snow sports & no weeding nor mowing! Everyone’s yard looks great in snow!
Fall. Fall fall fall. I especially love it in the mountains when the first few snows come, but the bright leaves are still clinging to the trees. It’s magic.
Definitely summer & fall, after spring mud season, because the high-country trails are open. As a trail runner & rider (of horses, not bikes), I'm much more partial to trails than snow, although I certainly appreciate the snowpack, and I've learned to like skiing somewhat.
My favorite season is fall. Beautifully colored leaves, less humidity and cooler temperatures make a perfect opportunity for backpacking and day hikes! Sorry snowboarders...
Tough one! I like something different about each season in the Mountains.
