#OptOutside this Black Friday!


Enjoying smores on Black Friday

While some are making plans for a day of shopping with crowds, you can make plans to get outside and start some new traditions! Last year we talked about the joy of cutting your own Christmas tree on Black Friday but if you’d like a less involved adventure there are still lots of ways to get outside.

Friday looks cloudy and a bit rainy and windy in the Puget Sound area, so it would be a good day to take in a city park walk or a bike ride. If you want to get up to the snow, the snow level will be around 4000 feet on Friday, so you’d want to get up high somewhere, such as Mt Rainier National Park or Olympic National Park.

If you’re looking for inspiration, visit REI’s #OptOutside Campaign page and you can look for ideas based on location and type of activity!

See you outside on Friday! Happy Holidays!
