Has winter left you feeling sluggish? Being outdoors is the perfect way to get a little vitamin D boost without even thinking about it. Going for a walk or bike ride, cooking breakfast outside and other activities will quickly give you a top up. Only remember to always use sunscreen!
If you’re an experienced camper, you might know that chilly conditions usually mean bringing a full collection of jackets, blankets and thermal wearables to your trip. But when spring emerges, the list of equipment and clothing is limited to just a few items. Waterproofs, however, are never a bad idea in case of light spring showers.
Spur of the moment
Has it been a long week? Why not get away? Spring is the perfect time for impromptu trips to your favorite park. Generally, reservations are not needed and campgrounds will not be crowded.
Whether you choose a national park, the beach or the countryside, the colors of spring are a breath of fresh air after the Winter. Colorful flowers, waterfalls (courtesy of the snow melt) and green grass fields are simply a spectacle of nature. That’s why this is also a great season for wildlife photography! Just dig out that camera and show off your skills.
Easier outdoor pursuits
Generally, winter makes trail walks difficult, or at least tougher than they should be. Spring thaws out those routes so they’re far easier to traverse. Also, spring brings along longer days, which is ideal for longer hikes. Additionally, in this season trails will be less crowded than in summer, so you can just relax and enjoy the quiet atmosphere at your own pace.
