A weekend playlist for driving in the fall | The Fresh Exchange


This weekend marks the end of September and the beginning of October and no matter how we want to hang onto summer, we have to admit that I think it is officially over. But do not fret because the glorious sunny crisp days of fall maybe the second best day to the summer days we all loved so much. I love these days in Michigan that start cool and crisp and icy and warm up to t-shirt and jean weather. They always bring back wonderful memories of corn mazes and apple picking as a kid.

One of our favorite things to do in the fall is to drive. The changing of the colors on the trees is rapid and if not enjoyed can disappear in the blink of an eye. So I suggest making a point to plan a day to hop in the car at least once, drive out toward the mountain, woods, or whatever place inspires your love for fall. Plan to stop for apple cider, buy a pumpkin and apples from a farm stand, and don’t skip on the pumpkin donut either. It is essential to enjoying fall to have at least one fall drive to take in the beauty of the season.

To encourage you even further to make this a point this season, we pulled together a playlist perfect for your fall drive.

What is your favorite thing to do in the fall? We are trying to start new traditions and would love to hear!

Hello! I’m Megan Gilger,

A strong believer that nature and the seasons are our greatest teachers. We live on a hill in Leelanau County, Michigan just a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan. This land we are responsible for is where we are focused on building a life around the seasons and intention. We spend our days here building a regenerative model of living and focusing our garden on native plants and intensive polyculture planting styles. My focus is less on self-sufficiency and more on community-sufficiency through how we grow and connect through the seasons.
