Vibrant colors and mild weather makes autumn in the Adirondacks the ideal time to get outside and go places with your sweetie. Try apple picking, a horse-drawn carriage ride, or even a simple walk to the park. If the latter appeals to you, we’ve come up with an activity that is both fun and free: try a scavenger hunt! Make a game of it; perhaps whoever finds the most items on the list can be rewarded with a romantic dinner for two cooked by the other partner.

Without further ado, here is our suggested list of items to look for when taking an autumn stroll!

What to find:

1. A red squirrel
2. Red, orange, yellow, and brown colored leaves (one of each!)
3. Two birds that look like a mated pair
4. Three carved pumpkins
5. Two different sets of animal tracks
6. Five pine cones
7. Six acorns
8. A picnic table or bench
9. A trail leading into the woods
10. A pet wearing a sweater or other warm fall clothing

    This idea is too cute! Just today I was thinking about how nice it would be to walk the local trails and enjoy the beautiful weather.

    I’d love to make a date of this before autumn ends. My hometown is quite rustic so it would be the perfect spot for a nice scavenger hunt.

    I may have a difficult time completing this hunt where I live but I’d love to give it a try! I haven’t been on a scavenger hunt in such a long time.

    Oh my gosh that dog in a sweater is so cute!

    And the photo of the squirrel is gorgeous too. We don’t have squirrels where I’m from, I’d love to see one in real life.
