Taryn's Wreckreation Guide: 5 Activities That Are Better Than Talking About Politics

March 30, 2017

No matter which way you turn it seems there's a political discussion happening. Not saying that's necessarily a bad thing, but it's certainly not the ONLY thing we should have to focus on! Give yourself a break from our heated political climate, and try one of my favorite activities:

 

1. Spring Skiing! Have you seen the conditions as of late?! Sure, there have been a few soggy ones, but there have been some INSANE powder days with bluebird conditions. Mt. Baker currently has the most snowfall of all ski areas in North America for the 2016-17 season, so what are you waiting for? Here's what was happening up there last weekend...

 

2. Take A Hike! With the bursts of springtime sunshine we've been enjoying, it's a great time to hit the trails. Bring your pups and check out great hikes off Mountain Loop Highway just outside Granite Falls. One of my personal favorites has to be Lake 22. Although the lake itself is thawing out, there's still snow to be found! Be sure to pack your Yak Traks just in case...

3. Rent A Bike! Then hit the Centennial Trail in Snohomish County, the Burke-Gilman Trail in King County, or the Scott Pierson Trail in Pierce County. Check out Snohomish Bicycles in Snohomish and Lake Stevens, Pedal Anywhere in Seattle and San Juan Island, or Wheel Fun Rentals in Tacoma if you don't have a bike to ride, then hit the trails!

4. Go To A Show! There are local bands playing at our favorite venues EVERY night of the week. Check out who's coming to the Mirkwood Public House in Arlington; High Dive, El Corazon/Funhouse, and Studio Seven in Seattle, Tony V's Garage in Everett; and Jazzbones in Tacoma! You might just find a new favorite to follow around (happens to me ALL the time).

5. Have Sex! No need to get into details... Whether it's with yourself or with another, it's FAR more fun than politics. Period.

 

Keep these 5 things in mind anytime your Facebook feed gets a little heated, or the news report your watching starts getting out of hand. You're in control of your environment - enjoy it!

 

Happy Adventuring,
