Self Imposed OBN Writing Prompt: What Outdoor Activity I Look Forward to this Fall

I don't know about you, but I'm checking OBN compulsively these days. I suppose I've just gotten used to the enjoyable posts, blog highlights, photo and writing prompts, and giveaways. Joe and Rebecca have done such an awesome job with OBN. Consider that while also being able to continue with all of their other indoor and outdoor activities (moving, fishing, work, etc).

 Lately, I think the two of them have been busy, so I thought, as a member of the OBN community, I would pose a question to myself. My own OBN Writing Prompt. The question: what outdoor activity am I looking forward to this fall?

 Oh, this is easy. As a new resident of the east coast, I am looking forward to seeing the leaves change in the Shenandoah National Park. More specifically, I'm looking forward to seeing the leaves change while throwing a fly at some small mountain stream brookies. Sara and I are hoping to drive out for the day in one of these next few weeks. Hopefully we can plan it so, while we are there, the sun cuts through the crisp air and lights up those red, yellow and orange leaves like a kaleidoscope.

 So how about you all? What are you looking forward to this fall? Think of it as a writing or photo prompt if you like. Or NOT if you don't like:)


  1. Don't forget the fall runs of Stripers and Red Drum :)

    Let me know if you guys make it up near the Blue Ridge Parkway. I'll give you a few creeks to try!

  2. Ha. I think it is harder for me to imaging that, because I've never experienced it. A red drum would be awesome and I'm keeping my eye out for those stripers.

  3. I don't have much to say. Except for that is one fine lookin blue badge. :) LOL
