Gratitude Day 8: National Park System

I have been away beach camping. Although evoking images of sun, palms and sand, camping in Washington state is a little more... wild. The beaches of the north pacific are windy, often overcast and cold. Even in late July. The camping wasn't too cold, but was no tropical paradise.

Nevertheless, you have to love the park service. Firstly, they allow me to beach camp in the first place. Many of Washington's beaches are public land. Secondly, they keep the beach in a reasonable condition for every user. Thirdly, they regulate use to ensure everyone has enough camp space.

Now if only they could do something about the weather.
