Summer is a time for exploration. It’s warm, bright and just radiates an aura of adventure. It encourages us to conquer mountains, tame wilderness and swim the deepest oceans — OK, for some of us anyway.
For the rest of us, a call to the great outdoors doesn’t mean we must offer up life or limb to the calling. We can experience our environment and learn a little bit about our history in less extreme ways and still fulfill that need for the warm feeling of heat on our skin and the exhilaration of an active day full of sunshine and exercise.
