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?
