10 Top Areas for Sledding and Tubing in Washington for Families

10 Top Areas for Sledding and Tubing in Washington Are you someone who loves winter & all of the activities in the snow? Spring & summer are definitely my favorite seasons in the Northwest, but I love to try out all the fun snow sports every winter with my family. We are so fortunate here in the western parts of the Northwest to be so close to the mountains, yet thankfully we have mainly mild temperatures in most locations. So, we don’t have to deal with driving in the snow unless we want t...

Sunriver, Oregon – 12 Things To Do For Families In The Summer!

Sunriver, Oregon is one of my families favorite Northwest vacation spots. My aunt owns a timeshare there, and has blessed us with stays in the Winter and the Summer, and there has never been a time we have visited that we did not love it there. The kids love the freedom they have to roam a bit. I love the beauty of the area. I also love that once we get there, there is so much to do within walking distance. One thing that I love about Sunriver, is that there is so much natural beauty around. I...

Century Plant Pouch

Much-loved in the high desert of New Mexico, the Century Plant isn?t just pretty to look at?it's also a symbol of starting fresh and continuing on. As the plant nears the end of its life, a tall yellow blossom sprouts, and the shoots replant themselves to keep the circle of life going strong. National Park ranger Hanna Hedstrom hand drew the hardy plant on this natural cotton pouch, which Jen Fox designs and sews, securing each with an antique brass zipper and a plant identification card. Just t...

The 4 Best Beaches for Families in Olympic National Park and Where to Stay

The 4 Best Beaches for Families in Olympic National Park We went camping over on the Washington coast close to Olympic National Park for our second summer in a row and I have to tell you that this is one of the most beautiful parts of the Northwest. The incredible ruggedness of the beaches is so much more dramatic in Olympic National Park than in any other beach area of Washington & it reminds me a lot of the beaches in Oregon & Northern & Central California, with some of those beautiful, rug...

No Matter Where/When…Consider a National Park

No Matter Where/When…Consider a National Park Just because summer is drawing to a close doesn’t mean all your outdoor activities have to also… Lace up your hiking boots, ladies! Just because summer is drawing to a close doesn’t mean all your outdoor activities have to, too. In fact, fall may just be the best time of year to get outside and explore the country’s national parks: they’re not as crowded since summer visitors have unlaced their hiking boots, it’s not as hot and sweaty, and you’ll...

Alderbrook Resort – Family Friendly Destination on the Hood Canal in the Northwest

  After over 10 years of living here in the south Puget Sound area, I am so surprised that I have never spent more time in the Hood Canal region of the Puget Sound. It’s just a little over an hour’s drive from the Tacoma area (2 hours from the Seattle area) but once you get past the freeways & onto the little highways heading to the Hood Canal, you can almost feel the pace of life just slow down & become more relaxed as you drive along through these tiny towns found along the waters of the Hood...

Park Visit: Denali

Park Visit: Denali With six million acres in wild land, Denali National Park is worth the trek to the Last Frontier… Growing up in Alaska, Denali National Park holds a special place in my heart. Its seemingly endless acreage is home to the largest peak in North America, sitting over 20,000 feet above sea level and named ‘big mountain’, or Denali, by my Athabaskan people. Long before I was born, my own father even summited this beautiful beast during a mountaineering expedition in the late 70...

Weekend Do: Lake Louise, Banff National Park

This post comes from our Calgary Social Media Content Creator, Bailey… The Rocky Mountains stand as an impressive background to Calgary, Alberta. Having Banff National Park in my backyard makes my Alaskan heart feel at home (yes, another Alaskan). I spend many weekends hiking in the mountains with my husband or friends, and I am always up to exploring new places. Seeing these getaways for the first time will always be something that makes my soul sing. No matter how many times I’ve seen Lake...
