SMART LIST
5 things to do
this fall
Bike through changing foliage and harvest
your own pumpkin before the weather turns.
1
Head to a museum. On a
rainy day, pack up the family
and visit a museum. Portland's
Oregon Museum of
Science and Industry will
keep you busy with plentiful
exhibits, submarine tours, a
planetarium, and an IMAX
theater. You'll forget about
the gloomy day outside with
so much to do.
2
Pick a pumpkin. The
Northwest is brimming with
spots to snag the perfect
pumpkin for your fall festivities.
You can even make a
day of it. Many ranches
offer more than just pumpkins:
get lost in a hay maze,
saddle up for a pony ride, or
delight in farm cuties at a
petting zoo.
3
Trim the yard. Autumn is
the perfect time to prepare
your shrubs and bushes for
winter. To prune, start with
clean, sharp tools, and
always wear gloves and
eye protection. First, cut
Pumpkins and gourds galore.
off any obviously dead foliage
and twigs as well as
damaged and diseased
limbs. Trim back to the
" collar, " or swollen base of
the branch. Finish by trimming
off the " suckers, "
shoots that grow from the
base of the trunk or roots.
4
Pedal through the foliage.
Oregon's Willamette Valley
Scenic Bikeway offers an
ideal way to view fall bursting
forth. The bikeway
winds through small towns,
along fields ready for harvest,
and past the meandering
Willamette River.
5
Soak in a hot spring.
There's so much to do outside
in the Pacific Northwest,
but taking a dip in
the soothing waters of a
hot spring ranks as one of
the most relaxing-especially
when temperatures
start to drop. Call ahead to
confirm any changes due
to Covid-19. -katie henry
