Can a sentence contain only a list?


Can a sentence contain only a list?  Consider the second sentence in the following example:


"Autumn is an excellent time to enjoy the outdoors.  The temperatures are warm enough for light clothing, hiking trails have very little foot traffic, and there are very few insects to worry about."


Would it be more proper to combine the two sentences above with a semicolon?  Or perhaps append "...for several reasons" to the first sentence?  Or prepend "The reasons for this are..." to the second sentence?  To my ear, it would read (and sound) better unchanged.
