You Live in One of the Most Beautiful Places on Earth. Get Out There. 

In a few weeks, maybe a month, we'll finally shake this convection-oven summer heat and

soul-crushing humidity. And for a while, before winter takes hold, the Triangle will be as close to paradise as it gets. Not too hot, not too cold, not suffocatingly humid. The leaves will begin to turn, and the torpid air will turn crisp.

In short, this is the perfect time of year to be outside. And that's where we come in. In the INDY's Outdoors Guide, you'll find a collection of stories on all manner of outdoor activities, from hiking to biking, kayaking to marathoning (as well as a quick detour into going outside while still being outside, just because). Whether you're looking to test the limits of your endurance, lower your carbon footprint, or find an idyllic spot to contemplate the ineffable nature of existence, we hope that, in these pages, you'll find the inspiration to get out there and do it.
