When I was in my twenties, much of my summers were spent in a 1978 Southwind RV, traveling the U.S.. (Okay, so a lot of that time was also spent on the side of the road attempting to fix the vehicle, but that was, um, part of the adventure or something.) And while there were lots of random stops to visit friends and various attractions, most of the destinations were music festivals (where I vended the eco-friendly clothing line I owned at the time) or National Parks.
It’s been a few years now since I’ve last officially been in a National Park, but I daydream of them often (especially my favorites: Yellowstone, Yosemite, Rocky Mountain, and Redwood). And I can’t wait to take my kids on a tour of them on our own summer adventure once they’re a little older.
A few days ago, I stumbled upon this new collection of eco-conscious clothing from Free People in partnership with the National Park Foundation, and was instantly smitten. And no, this isn’t sponsored; I just loved them all too much not to share. Whether it’s the nostalgic aspect of seeing them or the fact that I’m drawn to the style (or both), they make me want to put on one of the pieces and hop on the next RV I see headed west. This time I think I’ll opt for a slightly newer model though…
What is your favorite National Park you’ve visited?
