Off season, when the parks are empty but the temperatures aren't yet frigid, that's the best time to go exploring. We went to Wentworth State Park in New Hampshire. We were the only ones there for much of the time. The animal tracks were all over. There's nothing like experiencing science where it happens. As a bonus, the scenery was breath taking. Thankful for my husband's new schedule, which allows us more time than ever before for family outings.
