Summer is almost gone, but there’s still a good couple of weeks left. Late summer is like a blending of summer activities and autumn activities. As the sun sets earlier and earlier, and the air outside gets cooler, some of the following activities reach their peak potential for enjoyment. Read on to learn about these activities. Some may be brand new to you!
Photo Scavenger Hunt
You probably have a smartphone or some portable way to take pictures in 2020. You can challenge a friend or two, or even some family members to go out and find an agreed-upon list of objects, situations, and locations. You can upload your pictures to albums on social media and compare them to see who got the best pictures. Consider taking pictures of things like:
- Classic cars
- Birds or other wildlife
- Posing in front of a landmark
- The starry sky
- A unique design on a building
- Or make your own list
Don’t try to go rock climbing outdoors if the sun is about to go down! Make sure you have climbing experience, equipment, and other climbers with you, or go to an indoor climbing facility. For example, consider these local climbing wall locations:
- Gold’s Gym– 1800 Flandro Dr #200, Pocatello, ID 83202
- Idaho State University Climbing Wall– 741 S 7th Ave, Pocatello, ID 83201
- Community Recreation Center– 144 Wilson Ave, Pocatello, ID 83201
- Reed Gym– 1535 E Terry St, Pocatello, ID 83201
What’s one activity that can be enjoyed from late spring all the way to late fall? Bonfires. Of course, you need to check to make sure the place you plan to have a bonfire is legal and that you can safely and responsibly burn without causing problems for other people. Invite friends, food, and a fire extinguisher and have a fun, safe late summer evening. If fire danger is too high, you might want to try doing some late summer grilling instead, and you can simulate the fun of a bonfire, and most importantly, still get some delicious food.
