Autumn is my absolute favorite time of the year. The leaves are changing, the town is slowing down, and pumpkins are popping up on doorsteps. I also think that autumn is one of the best times of the year to pack a picnic basket and drive up to the park to see the wildlife getting ready for winter. The colors of the aspen trees can’t be beat, and our valley is the perfect temperature to take a nice easy hike. So grab a friend and these local products and go have a fun day playing in the park.
Necessities for a great autumn picnic include the following, as well as a great backdrop.
This Heirloom Angle Quilt for staying warm or to snuggle on under the aspens. Available at Roam, $500.
A Basin Tech Tote to haul all your delicious goodies on your hike. Available at Stio, $109.
Grab some delicious baked goods from Persephone or Picnic to bring along on your hike.
If you head out on a hike throughout the month of November and get a great picture, dishing would love to see it and you could win a gift certificate to a restaurant in town! Tag #dishingpicnic in your fall Instagram pictures for a chance to win. The winner will be drawn on Nov. 1.
