Hands-down, hanging out in the state park that was mere yards from our house. We seriously, literally lived right on the border! How cool is that? You could go hiking, biking and exploring for hours without covering the same ground twice. There was a swimming pool in the summer and plenty of hills for good sledding in the winter. We caught frogs, collected rocks, pretended to be lost in the forest, and probably never even explored the half of it.
I miss that state park. Where I live now is great, but you have to go a little farther than out the back door to get to the woods (let alone a whole state park). And while the closest state park has a killer lake and lovely hiking trails, it just isn’t the same. It lacks the little streams, dense trees, endless herds of deer killer mountain bike trails.
I want both, dammit. Right next to each other. And preferably just a stone’s throw from my porch.
Awesome! I can imagine how wonderful that was! I would love to live next to a state park!
It was so awesome! It’s very different living in town. I guess both have their advantages though!
That sounds so great! I used to live in Seattle and I miss the mountains and the ocean and the skiing!
Lucky you! I vacationed on the Washington/Oregon coast when I was in high school and I loved being sandwiched between the mountains and the ocean. It’s the best of both worlds. I want to go back so badly!
I dont know about the frog catching but I’m all for being super close to all that fun stuff. Right now we live near a state park but because we live in the stupid desert it’s boring and dry and ugly as hell. Blarg.
Thanks so much for linking up!
Aw, you know you want to catch a frog for a pet! :D I’m not a fan of the desert. I know it has its own natural beauty, you just have to look for it, blah blah blah…but I couldn’t live there. I need my trees! Thanks for stopping by!
I love how outdoorsy and adventurous this sounds!
thanks so much for linking up!!
