第二大加州州立公园,亨利W科伊州立公园也在很大程度上被公众忽视。At 87,000 acres,it is twice the size of the District of Columbia,可能是美国其他地方的国家公园,and yet only saw 38,000 visitors in 2010.在这个阵亡将士纪念日的周末,我们和另外三个家庭在那里扎营,我想向你们展示一下,你们可以怎样对待你们的孩子,所以你可以欣赏这片荒野和牧场的宝石。

在学校重新开学之前,你应该带你的孩子去这个不可思议的公园,原因有10个。

1。Support your parks!亨利WCOE是一个靠生命维持的公园。去年的收入只有10万美元,包括汽车和露营费,Henry W Coe.is on the chopping block of the California state 2011 budget.Unless a solution is found,它将于2011年9月与其他69个国家公园一起关闭。如果你认为这不是一个好理由,阅读项目2至10,并思考如果停车场关闭会损失什么。betway经典老虎机为了支持公园,you can also sign a petition on the website of theCalifornia State Parks Foundation.

2.Manzanita点营地.Forget camping at the park's headquarters.The views may be nice but you are missing out on a great opportunity to feel like you're backpacking – with a car.我们在Manzanita Point Group现场露营9,距公园总部2.5英里。The reason it feels so remote is you're only allowed 1 to 2 vehicles per site,只有一次进进出出。Of course,this requires some planning with your friends but a flatbed pick up truck does the trick for 3 families.Four of us adults 必威体育app官网hiked in,其余的人开车去了。Once you're there,想象一下:没有房车引擎在你旁边嗡嗡作响,晚上很晚没有汽车绕圈行驶,凌晨收集垃圾桶时,禁止卡车撞击金属。Just listen to the sounds of nature – and possibly your neighbors partying but sites are fairly spread out so it shouldn't be a problem.

3.必威体育app官网在美丽的小路上远足.它的大尺寸和四个入口点在边界上,very little of Henry W.科伊的荒野是白天徒步旅行的好去处,必威体育app官网孩子们更是如此。这个公园意味着一些严重的山丘!不过,如果你已经在Manzanita Point露营地行驶了2.5英里,你可以进入不太知名的景点和令人敬畏的风景。

On Sunday,we all 必威体育app官网hiked to China Hole,海湾地区最好的游泳池之一。整个徒步旅行距离营地必威体育app官网6.6英里。starting on Cougar Trail continuing on Creekside trail,贫困道路平坦,止于Manzanita Point路。总高度增加:1300英尺。所有从4岁到7岁的孩子都会走路。Not too shabby,据我的朋友杰森所说,他在他的加敏先驱305上记录了行程。

4.Swim and splash at China Hole.以地下泉为食,中国洞是公园里最受欢迎的游泳点。No wonder.This lovely lush spot on Coyote Creek offers a string of wading and swimming opportunities for all cold-water endeavors.

Located just a few hundred feet downstream from the confluence of the Middle and East forks of Coyote Creek and the gateway to the Narrows,China Hole is where we laid down our backpacks,changed into swim suits and let the kids play on the sandy beach or jump in 3-feet deep pools,两个成年人在小溪深处游泳。

While all the kids dipped their feet in the creek,他们中只有一半决定玩水。Others started making "rock paint" by crushing two pebbles against each other,添加水和油漆手臂和面部。一对夫妇在温暖的沙滩上玩耍,甚至还做了沙天使。Good thing there was water nearby to rinse it all off!

5。在岩石上开辟一条小溪。对于徒步旅行者来说,找到穿越小溪时鞋子不会被弄湿的确切位置是非常令人满意的。必威体育app官网For kids,crossing creeks is an even bigger deal as it involves combining good balance with sizing up skipping stones as potential bridges to the other side.我们涉过两次郊狼溪,两次孩子们都表现出色。

6。在营地吊床上荡秋千。自从6年前我们收到一张旅行吊床作为圣诞礼物以来,it's been part of our camping set.Wherever you camp in wooded areas,you can always find two trees roughly 8 to 10 feet apart to hang this hammock.The kids will love you for it.

REI and Amazon.com carry a nice selection of ultralight travel hammocks made of parachute material,such as thisEagles Nest Outfitters Double Nest Hammockthat weighs only a pound and can carry up to 400 pounds.天这么轻,我甚至可以带它去徒步旅行!必威体育app官网

7.Improvise a swing.如果你的车里没有吊床或秋千(我知道,我知道,它们是如此重要,一定要随身携带50英尺的结实的攀岩绳。绳子是野营旅行中的救生员,和晾衣绳一样好,jump rope or knot rope.你还可以找到一根结实的树枝,把绳子绕一圈(如果你不能把绳子穿过树枝的话,在绳子的末端绑一块石头),然后在底部的套索上挂一根大棍子。Tie a few knots.回转问题解决了!Now kids,get in line and behave.大人们都忙着放松!

8。为仙女建造一座堡垒。This has got to be one of my favorite activities for kids because it makes them figure out the basics of 3D construction with natural materials.My 2nd grader started building a fort with sticks and was joined by two friends.

三个堡垒和一点父母的帮助,they had a solid structure that could withstand a light breeze and kids running dangerously close around it.

The younger kids got interested and thanks to a fairy-making and a tea light/ping pong ball activity,把堡垒变成了一个精灵们可以在晚上来玩的地方。

那天晚上晚些时候,在乒乓球的背景下玩发光棒,电池驱动的茶灯蜡烛的闪烁灯光照亮了乒乓球,it was a magical sight.

9。享受营火吧。The first night we camped,雨下得很稳,我们几乎没有人准备应付潮湿的天气。点燃一堆火被证明是最好的解药,可以让那些像疯侏儒一样跑来跑去的孩子们保持精神和温暖。

第二天晚上天气很好,孩子们都在拼命地烤棉花糖,直到棉花糖的原料都干了。他们实现了这一目标,以及手上沾满的白色粘液,faces and clothes.因为你知道,有什么比用你自己的毛衣来擦去融化的棉花糖更好的方法呢?

10。看看野生动物。我得出的结论是,去亨利W。COE必须包括野生动物目击。There's just wild animals everywhere if you keep your eyes peeled.

在去Manzanita点的路上,我们看见两只野火鸡在营地里游荡。They were the first of 4 wild turkey sightings over 2 days.在营地,we saw three big black hairy caterpillars with orange dots that turned out to be future checkerspot butterflies.头发变凉了,因为我们不知道它们是否有毒。

After I lifted a log in the fort building process,one of the kids identified a big animal that lived inside the log and was attempting an exit: a scorpion!我记下了日志(当然了),我们都很接近了,试图从安全的距离看到它。

这张模糊的照片是由我丈夫拍摄的,他试图用一根棍子(不伤害野兽)把蝎子从木头里弄出来,同时按下相机的按钮并对焦。

周末,我们还去野营地参观了鹿,在山上看到了更多的人,我的二年级学生拿着一只黑甲虫玩,晚上我们听到一只巨大的猫头鹰在叫。

现在,如果你说你需要带家人去亨利W,你会相信我吗?Coe state park?
