Fall Is A Favorite
October 1, 2021
Arizona Autumns Are Awesome!
Especially this fall that is full of celebration and color!
First, we thank Lake Havasu City Tourism and Convention Bureau, Jeff Blumenfeld, and Jason Castellucci for assembling the wonderful photos and information about this month's incredible celebration: The 50th anniversary of the dedication of Lake Havasu City's famed London Bridge. Read the page 1 story that outlines the October-filled calendar of fun and activities to mark this big birthday event. (Jim and I hope to join in the festivities and are grateful for the invitation.)
Second, although we often think of fall colors in the Northeast, Margie Anderson reminds us that they are also close to home. They are part of Arizona's beautiful artscapes, and she leads us to the best places to view them.
Finally, in addition to looking forward to cooler weather, many are also ready for the autumn hunting season; please see our web site for this month's hunting calendar: http://www.westernoutdoortimes.com.
As summer comes to a close and the refreshing weather of autumn returns, we wish you many happy outdoor times ahead. Oh, and a Happy Halloween to boot!
