Washington State Parks Folk and Traditional Arts in the Parks Program - An Introduction
The mission of Washington State Parks is to care for the state’s most treasured lands, waters and historic places and connect all Washingtonians to their natural and cultural heritage through memorable experiences in the parks. Since 2004, the Folk & Traditional Arts Program of Washington State Parks has added to those memorable state park experiences with performances by musicians, dancers, craftspeople and storytellers who represent a wide variety of old and new Washington traditions. From tribal canoe family journeys to Cinco de Mayo festivities, from fisher poetry to Ecuadorian song, from Hawaiian hula to old-time square dances, the program brings people together — some to celebrate a common heritage and some to explore the traditions of others.
This video profiles groups that participated in the 2016 program: the Cambodian community of South Puget Sound with Srey Ryser as spokesperson; fisher poets, or commercial fishers who translate their experiences into performance, with Erin Fristad as performer and spokesperson; and the Canoe Families of the Chehalis, Nisqually, Puyallup and Skokomish tribes, with Hanford McCloud of the Nisqually Tribe as spokesperson. Each speaks to the reasons that participating in parks events is important to the community.
The Folk & Traditional Arts performances and events are funded, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Washington State Parks Foundation, and funds generated through the sale of Washington State Parks license plates.

Leavenworth Washington - A Cool Town with a Great RV Campground
If you haven't visited Leavenworth Washington in your RV then you're missing out...big time! We heard from some that Leavenworth was cliche and fake, but our experience was totally different. We found a cool town with a fun Bavarian mountain theme, and tons of locals awaiting us with open arms. We ate veggie brats, drank local beer, kayaked the river, consumed lots of local wine, and we can't wait to do it all again!
Check out our website for more details:
We were in Leavenworth to film the Thousand Trails RV Resort and Campground. Normally we don't gush over private campgrounds but this spot is totally cool, and if you're a member of TT it's basically free!

My Sony HXR-NX100 rode shotgun on a tripod shooting at 4 fps. The tripod was held in place using bungee cords giving it I nice smooth feel, even on bumpy roads. I also used this same camera to shoot various scenes around the country, and to interview folks.

Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge - Olympia, WA
This Refuge is probably one of the coolest places for seeing birds and wildlife but on this day we didn't really find a whole lot but it was still super fun. After doing research later I realized that this place had a whole lot more going on scientifically and socially.
Address: 100 Brown Farm Rd NE, Olympia, WA 98516
Area: 7.077 mi²
Phone: (360) 753-9467
Here is some stuff I plagiarized off Wikipedia:
The Billy Frank Jr. Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge is a wildlife preserve operated by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service on the Nisqually River Delta near Puget Sound in northeastern Thurston County, Washington and northwestern Pierce County, Washington. The refuge is located just off Interstate 5, between the cities of Tacoma and Olympia.
The 12.6 km2 refuge was created in 1974 to provide habitat and nesting areas for waterfowl and other migratory birds. It includes a protected estuary, salt marshes and open mudflats, freshwater marshes, open grassland, and riparian woodland and brush. An additional 3.2 square kilometres (1.2 sq mi) is protected by the disjoint Black River Unit on a tributary of the Chehalis River.
On December 18, 2015, President Barack Obama signed the Billy Frank Jr. Tell Your Story Act into law, redesignating the wildlife refuge in honor of Nisqually tribe leader and treaty rights activist Billy Frank, Jr., who died in 2014
The wildlife refuge is home to the Nisqually River Delta, which has the unique status as Washington’s largest relatively undisturbed estuary. The confluence of the freshwater Nisqually River and the saltwater south Puget Sound has created a variety of unique environments, each rich in nutrients and natural resources for the local wildlife. The delta provides habitats for more than 300 different species of fish and wildlife.
In 1904 the Brown Farm Dike, five miles long, was created to protect farmland from tidal surge, resulting in a loss of important habitat for young fish, birds and marine mammals such as harbor seals. As part of a long running project to restore the estuary, in 2009 a new 10,000 foot dike was installed behind the old dike and four miles of the old Brown Farm Dike were removed. This enabled the tidal flows to reclaim 762 acres to the estuary.
Sea life features 24 species of fish located in one of three habitats: riverine, estuarine or the Nisqually Reach nearshore. Large populations of fall Chinook salmon, starry flounder and shiner perch offer a sampling of the fish that are abundantly available. The saltmarshes and mudflats are located outside of the dikes. Rich in nutrients, they are the home to clams, crabs, shrimp and worms, which in turn feed ducks, gulls and herons.
Over 20,000 birds, made up of 275 different migrating species, use the freshwater marshes and grasslands for breeding, resting or wintering. The most abundant bird types include raptors, shorebirds and songbirds. Larger animals such as hawks and coyotes feast in the grassland due to the presence of mice and voles.
The riparian woodland and brush habitats contain many amphibians, mammals and reptiles.

Washington's Coastal Beaches Part II - Pacific Coast and Fireworks
Part two of an RV trip and camping around Washington's Olympic Peninsula visiting Salt Creek Recreation area tidal pools, Crescent Beach, and Crescent Lake, Ruby Beach, South Beach Campground, Quinault, and in Ocean Shores for Fireworks on the beach.
My first stop was the Salt Creek Recreation Area where I scored a great campsite with an ocean view. I also spent a day exploring the nearby tidal flats along the coast before sharing a beautiful sunset with some new friends.
As I traveled west along Highway 101, I couldn't help but stop at Lake Crescent, located right in the middle of the Peninsula. Lake Crescent's clear water and majestic surroundings made it a worthwhile break from the drive West.
After a brief stop in Forks, WA (made famous by the Twilight movies) I headed to the Pacific Coast. My first stop on the Pacific Ocean was beautiful Ruby Beach where I walked the beach and made friends with a couple fellow travelers visiting from California.
A short drive south along coast put me at the South Beach Campground. This quaint campground, operated by the National Park Service, is located right on the waterfront and costs a mere $10 per day. I decided to stay there a couple days and celebrate my birthday while I was there.
I eventually made my way to Ocean Shores, WA where I met up with my family. We enjoyed a relaxing few days, lit fireworks on the beach, and also enjoyed the many others doing the same.
Overall, it was a spectacular little trip. I had a great birthday, made friends along the way and spent quality time with my family. What more can you ask for. This is a trip I will definitely repeat.
