It’s National Get Outdoors Day. Enjoy Mother Nature & Go Camping!

363This Saturday, June 8, is National Get Outdoors Day, which means you don’t have much of an excuse not to hit the trails, pitch your tent, bust out the bike or dust off your canoe. Looking for a quick camping escape? Managing Editor Kelly Kramer, author of the new Arizona Highways Camping Guide, recommends Lockett Meadow, near Flagstaff.

“It’s set among the aspens, of course, and the 17 sites each offer spectacular views of the wilderness, including the ashy, cinder-cone landscape, Kramer writes. “In summer, the aspens blaze a brilliant green with new leaves. Sites 7 and 8 are perhaps the most scenic, while 13 through 15 are nothing to scoff at, either. You won’t find a bad site in the bunch.”

Information: Flagstaff Ranger District, Coconino National Forest, 928-527-3600 or

The Arizona Highways Camping Guide is available online at and at Arizona Costco locations beginning tomorrow.

  1. I would love to go for a walk, but it’s pouring down and Freezing cold here in Cape Town, South Africa.

    fewer and fewer people are camping without a 40 foot, airconditioned, microwaved, cable tv’d “camping trailer”. it seems to me even the majority of hunters can’t hunt without a 40 footer toy hauler, and riding an atv. whatever happened to real camping and hunting walking the terrain in stalk?

  3. Reblogged this on merayer and commented:
    There is a reason why that is her name. “Mother.” The Holy Spirit is in the wind. Don’t believe me? I’ll prove it to you in John.
