Here are 10 reasons why autumn is the best season in the Northwest: 1. The air is cooler while hiking now, so you're at just the right temp.

It's finally time to break out the warm flannel, hoodies, and cozy socks. Flickr / iamtheloop You know it's a great season when you can slip into something so comfy! 4.
