Like the rest of nature, humans answered the distinctive songs of spring—longer days, warmer nights, and increased activity. Emerging from more than a year of uncertainty, people are overwhelmingly getting outdoors and enjoying interacting with each other. Activities range from small picnics in a park, to the great western migration of RVs and minivans filling National Parks and state campsites.
We were no exception. Our last trip out of state was in January to visit family. Mountain tops reflected the light in coral and blue, and the roads were snowy.
These past few weeks, nature decided to give us bonus points on our travel stops, and the mass of humans in National Parks gave us an opportunity to explore lesser known spots, which was rewarding.
