I know – it’s ridiculously hot outside already, and that’s when the thunderstorms aren’t wreaking havoc across town.  We recently went for an evening hike, and still – it was hot.  That being said, let me plug a product:  A cooling pad/towel to wear while outdoors. Full disclosure:  I’ll probably be recommending a few products from time to time.  Check them out and help me fund the site.  Thanks for listening!

National Parks Free June 9th

Need an excuse for a summer excursion? This Saturday, June 9, all U.S. national parks and other locations managed by the National Park Service can be entered free of charge as part of National Get Outdoors Day.

All 397 locations within the national park system are offering free entry, from Michigan’s Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore to Colorado and Utah’s Dinosaur National Monument.

The fee-free designation applies to entrance fees only and does not affect fees for camping, reservations, tours or use of concessions. Those who plan to spend time in the park beyond June 9 will need to purchase an entrance pass for the remainder of their stay.

If you can’t find your way to the wilderness this weekend, there will also be fee-free days at national parks on Sept. 29 (National Public Lands Day) and Nov. 10-12 (Veterans Day Weekend).

The National Park Service’s Get Outdoors Day is an effort to encourage Americans to get out and experience their national park areas, according to a statement from the organization.

“National Get Outdoors Day provides an opportunity for kids of all ages to explore and enjoy their national forests and grasslands,” said U.S. Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell. “This is an open invitation for some healthy fun. Once you’ve experienced the forest, we think you’ll keep coming back.”

This is an interesting and potentially useful app: Sierra Club Trail Explorer.  It’s a database of trails across North America from the AllTrails.com database.  The database is a little sparse (for now) with local trails, but it has a feature that lets you use your phone’s GPS to track your route and upload it.  The app also works offline, so if you get too far out in the woods it’ll still work.  Download it from the iTunes app store, or for a similar app for Android, download the Alltrails app from Google Play.  Bonus:  the app is free.
