It’s Monday! Looking for inspiration for the week ahead? Just go one post down for my weekly list of best bets.
I don’t know if it’s the chilly air, or the fact that last week was a not-so-great one at the SFM house, but I’m wishing for Summer.
If your Summer plans include camping, you might want to reserve your spots now.
Now, we’re lucky to live in a state with many beautiful campgrounds, and some of them don’t take reservations anyway, so if you can’t plan that far ahead, you’ll probably still be o.k.
But, if you’re hoping for prime real estate during a popular time, like say a holiday weekend at Sun Lakes, or a July day at Klaloch, you need to get hopping now. Here’s your quick link to online reservations at Washington State Parks and Tacoma Power Sites. Here’s the site for most National Parks.
If you’re planning on heading to a National Park, you may want to plan your visit for one of this year’s free admission days. Jen at ThriftyNWmom has the whole list for you (the first are coming up for MLK weekend)!
Got a favorite park or a tip for scoring a great spot? Let me know! When the weather gets warmer, I’ll have lots of posts about favorite hiking and camping destinations as well as some ideas for making the most of your time outdoors. Can’t wait? Check out my Outdoor Fun link in the menu bar for walks and hikes that are doable now.
