For a brief moment every year, the world around us ignites with blazing colors. It’s nature’s last hurrah of the season that gives way to a spectacular fireworks display of glowing red, orange and yellow hues.
Yes, there’s no better time of the year to lace up your hiking boots and explore.
And if you need new boots for this season, you’re in luck. We’re giving away a pair of Timberland hiking boots perfect for tackling a changing landscape. How can you enter? Simply answer the following question in the comments section of this blog post:
And if you have photos from a past autumn hike, feel free to share a link to a Flickr album, too. We would love to momentarily transport ourselves there and live in that memory of pure beauty and serenity. Who wouldn’t?
While there can only be one winner, we are offering two different pairs. For men, there’s the Timberland Mountain Athletics Cadion 2.0 (pictured below). This mid boot has a Gore-Tex membrane and weighs just 17.5 ounces. It features full-grain leather and a Vibram XS Trek combined with Vibram Eco-Step outsole for excellent traction.
For the ladies, we have the Women’s White Ledge Waterproof Hiker (pictured below) with full-grain leather. The boot is seam-sealed to keep water out and boasts a moisture-trapping liner to manage the moisture within. A removable duel-density EVA footbed offers even more air circulation and a padded collar and tongue provide an extra layer of comfort. The back of the foot is protected with an external heel and a rubber outsole with strategically placed lugs ensures the best traction on the trail.
This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.
The winner will be announced on Oct. 10, 2011. Congratulations to Alex Ware! He won our giveaway with his explanation and photos of his favorite fall hike in Sedona, Arizona.
