In my personal opinion, the best thing you can do in the fall in St. Louis is go out and enjoy the beauty of the season! This past week, a few friends and I went out hiking in Castlewood State Park. It was such a nice, peaceful change of scenery from campus and the city and provided some much needed stress relief for all of us! We took a 3 mile hike through the woods and were just awed by the lovely changing leaves. Whenever I’m feeling stressed out with homework and classes and life in general, I’m going to try to go out and hike again. I’m so very glad we found Castlewood, and I hope that we can go out there again soon!
