Wrapping up our field trip theme this month, let's talk about doing things outdoors in the great state of Kansas! What are some of the places that you and your family like to go to hike, camp or just enjoy being outside in nature?

If you don't already have a favorite spot, many of the state parks are a great place to find one. There's usually a small parking fee to get into state parks (annual park passes are a great value and they are a fabulous thing to put on your family's birthday and/or Christmas wish lists), but Kansas is much cheaper than many of the other states. They have "peak" and "off-peak" times of the year. If you buy your annual pass during the "off-peak" time, it's cheaper but still allows entry into parks all year...including the "peak times!
