Keeping it Simple on Vacation
Camping is a family value. Well, for our family at least ;) Teaching our kiddos to appreciate nature and a simple lifestyle is not easy. Frankly, camping is not exactly the relaxing vacation that I would always pick out..but our kids have such a splendid time getting dirty, riding bikes and learning about nature that I would feel like a heel to suggest anything else.
I wouldn't mind an upgrade to a tent trailer...that would still be considered simple..frugal no?
Our adventures took us to Newberry National Volcanic Monument. I delighted in the purchase of a National Parks Passport book for each kiddo and placing their first stamp inside. I look forward to filling up their books with many more adventures.
I highly recommend taking in Paulina Creek falls and hiking up to Paulina Peak to get an incredible 360 degree view of the Cascade Mountain Range. Newberry National Monument is often an overlooked destination point, so head to central Oregon and get your fill of intriguing natural history and pine fresh air :)
