If you're anything like me, you really love summer & hate to see it go, but you welcome fall with open arms! There is so much to do in Maine in the fall. I wrote a blog post on Stiffler's Social Scoop [my personal blog] about how you can Get The Most Out of Fall in Maine. Apple picking, hiking, high school football & fall foliage are some of my favorites. What is your favorite thing about fall?

This is my favorite time of year. Soon the leaves will be changing and it will get cooler out. What is really exciting though is the start of the football season! No, I don't play football or even take part in a fantasy league, but I think its an awesome sport to watch. Saturday night I had the opportunity to watch the University of Maine Black Bears play against Bryant at the Alfond Stadium. My friends and I tailgated before the game and I was happy to see how many Maine fans came out for the first game of the season. The Black Bears didn't disappoint, winning the game 28-13. If you are ever in the mood to watch some football, check out a game.

Recently I got to play Disc Golf for the first time. The easy way to explain the game is that its like playing golf with discs (heavy duty frisbees). You throw the discs and try to get them to land into the basket with the least amount of throws for each hole. The 18-hole course in Orrington at 265 Center Drive is a great place to introduce yourself to the game. Its inexpensive and a great way to spend time outdoors. I may have gotten my disc stuck in a tree at one point, but honestly its an easy game to learn and a lot of fun.
