When the weather turns cold and snow begins to fall, cross-county skiing, sledding and sleigh riding are wonderful outdoor activities for the entire family. Fall is a great time to watch nature in her splendor. Country lanes and back roads offer excellent opportunities to see the leaves changing color.
