Summer in Full SwingJune 26th, 2011 by michellewhite
This Summer, my family has discovered an extraordinary activity where you drive for miles with all your stuff and then sleep under the stars! I know camping isn’t a new idea, but it is to us. I know you all must be shocked being that we live in the camping capital of the world (or maybe it just seems like that).
I have no excuse really. Other than I just never did it. My husband and i grew up in Urban NJ very close to NY and camping wasnt a priority in either of our families.
That has all changed! We are hooked. Our girls too.
What a fantastic experience for us all.
We camped at Sol Duc Falls in the Olympic Mountains and it was beautiful! *sigh* If you have never been, it is so worth it!
We were all squished in our 2 person tent, but had a blast eating outside and hiking and even just listening to the quiet.
I know we will do so much more of this before the Summer is over!
You can see more images and read a bit more about it here.
What new things will you try this Summer?
Do you have any favorite places to camp in WA?
